Red sky in morning…

Good morning, Netizens…

A particularly meaningful quote taken from this AP picture of the lobsterman in Maine states, “People who sleep until 10 o’clock miss the prettiest part of the day…” and as an early-riser, I could not agree more vehemently. Regardless of whether you are an urban-dweller or reside in the shrinking countryside, rising before the dawn always gives you the most-beautiful way to view the beginning of a new day.

As a vagabond sojourner in the State of Maine a long time ago, I never forgot the lobstermen and women who gathered each day in the quaint restaurants and cafes each morning before the dawn to have coffee and conversation, to discuss the weather, the price of the catch and of course, despite being taciturn by nature, occasionally the philosophies that guide their lives.

As I rise this morning, a bit before the skies in the East turn color, I pause and reflect upon the red sky in the morning, consider the implications of weather that it forebodes and laugh to myself at those feckless weather forecasters on television who, it seems, never look at the morning skies early in the morning.

Despite the weather, we communally have within our grasp the ability if not the obligation to make this day one of exceptional beauty and meaning or we can destroy it, wreck havoc and commit mayhem. Today: use on that basis.
