“Have you ever seen the dawn? Not a dawn groggy with lack of sleep or hectic with mindless obligations and you about to rush off on an early adventure or business, but full of deep silence and absolute clarity of perception? A dawning which you truly observe, degree by degree. It is the most amazing moment of birth. And more than anything it can spur you to action. Have a burning day.”
― Vera Nazarian
Dawn arrived cool and crisp, just below freezing, touching the earth with a light frosting. After the warm summer, the lake was still warm and mist hovered above the water in dancing tendrils of gold. Autumn has arrived in Ontario and though I will miss the long warm days, there is something about this snap and freshness in the air that is so invigorating. The heat parched plants of summer almost take on new life and vitality as the mists flow over them.
The light this time of year has a different feel, a warmth that is lacking in the direct sun of summer. As the days shorten, there is a promise of many wonderful moments that await me.
