A Kinder, Gentler BlogWhile there is no shortage of topics to get myself worked up over, I think it's time for a kinder, gentler blog today. I watched the sun come up under a soft blanket of low cloud this morning, infusing the whole sky with some color and magic. You just can't see something like that and go off on a rant. It just isn't right.
For some reason, mornings seem to suit me. There is just something about facing the day in the peace and quiet of the gathering dawn. In fact, I've been known to wax rhapsodic about sunrises. Take this early morning weather report from one of my previous writing endeavors, the Intermittent Argus (2/25/97), "The sun crept slowly over the eastern hills this morning. First a tiny peek of red, then a little blink of yellow. Finally, the blue came streaming over like a soft wave rolling onto an inky black beach. Ghostly white gulls reeled on the light breeze and soaked in the morning like down covered pillows. Yes, there was haze, but it lent a certain gauzy infusion that was both delicious and sublime. We stretched. We yawned. We met the soft morning and it became ours."
And with that, there just isn't anything else I can add.
Expect the next gallery to be introduced in Visios early next week. When it's up, I'll drop a note to everyone who already asked to be added to the distribution list. If you would like to be added, drop us a line. You can expect no more than one e-mail a week, maybe less.
We've also been pleased with your response so far. Remember to pass our link along to friends (we're a little like an Amway scam that way) and stop back often because we're trying to keep up a near daily update cycle. If you have comments or topic ideas, please pass those along too.
