Half-light – a photo challenge

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

We are away this week, but I have my laptop. I never travel without it, though sometimes I don’t use it, or can’t use it. It is Spring Break, a much needed break. We left town Thursday night and arrived here, at the beach, Friday evening.

It’s been a while since I posted anything, my last post was early February. It has been a long break from writing, I’ve been overwhelmed with life, seemingly been in the half-light of the world. Sometimes we need to press the ‘reset’ button.

Saturday morning, I was up to watch the sunrise, yesterday was Easter Sunday, Resurrection Day and I was reminded that light brings a new day and another chance. We attended the Easter Sunrise service on Sombrero Beach. It was a reminder of the importance of light. I must remember. Always.

We’ve spent the rest of the daytime in the full light of the sun at 24°43’3”N, 81°1’23”W, and an elevation of 10 feet, or lower. I am little sunburned, but I will survive, sun screen, long sleeved shirts, and shade during the peak hours of day are the prescription.

I’ll stay in the light and spend the mornings watching the sunrise on the Atlantic Ocean and the evenings gazing as the sun eases slowly into Florida Bay. Today is gonna be a great day. I know it and can feel it. But first, I gotta get W to scuba. Making the Days Count, one sunrise at a time.

What did you see the last time you watched the sunrise?

This post is in response the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Half-light. So this week, share a photograph inspired by a favorite poem, verse, story, or song lyric. Bonus points if you share why the particular text resonates with you. (Though you certainly don’t have to!) If you’re not feeling especially literary or musical this week, see if you can capture the beauty of morning or evening half-light in your corner of the globe.

    1. thanks for visiting and leaving a note. I need to remind myself that time matters from time to time… we are having a blast, but I am looking forward to getting home and back to the last quarter of the school year. Have a wonderful weekend.

      1. Thank you – so far the sunshine has been lovely and the flowers have been immensely cheering. Glad you’re having a great time, and…yeah. The Now. Tough to keep focussed but always worthwhile when we (I) manage it 🙂

    1. It has been a fun couple of days – saw your video and look forward to finding a way to visit Vicksburg and stay a night, or two. Today we are headed on an adventure to Bahia Honda State Park, sort of a pilgrimage of sorts, Thanks for stopping in….
