Anticipating the dawn
I took this picture of the Mexican Bluebells growing in front of Judi's house this morning:
The picture is a little dark, but there's a good reason for that: It was dark at the time. The sun was just beginning to light the eastern horizon. But these Mexican Bluebell flowers were already open, already facing the dawn, awaiting, anticipating the magnificent arrival of day. They seemed both eager and reverential. They were a choir of little blue faces.
They couldn't help but cheer me up. How can I feel down when the Bluebells and I are waiting for the sunrise together?
