09.27.10 = Quite reflection
I got up very early yesterday morning, actually I just didn’t sleep well Saturday night. I woke up to not just a chill in the air, but it felt down-right cold. I rummaged through my closet and dug out a sweatshirt and a pair of jeans. I went searching for my boots; grabbed a ball cap, Gracie and my camera and took off. With no place special in mind that I wanted to shoot I just started driving. It was so quite, nothing was awake yet. No cars, no joggers not even geese flying over head. The traffic lights were the only things moving around town. Gracie pressed her wet nose to the cracked window to smell the new cold fresh air. As we drove in silence we slowly watched the earth wake up. Birds began to fly, the low fog began to lift and street lights turned off one by one. We ended up at favorite spot where Gracie loves to watch the ducks. This is the only photo from my quite morning. The rest all memories of quite reflection.
“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” Henry David Thoreau
