Sunday 29 April 2012: Duet
This morning as I sat on a large flat topped boulder by Lake Bomoseen sipping coffee and taking in the silence of the new day. The waters were almost completely calm with areas of rippling. Only a few clouds floated along the skyline. As the sun readied itself to enter center stage, two geese flew in from the north and came in for a landing as the sun trailed its light on the water. The geese seemed aware of the symmetry as they floated on either side of the light. Now I say to you, if this isn't magical, what is? I like that this is not completely centered and the blur, for me, adds to the magic of the moment.

Shine the Herring Gull Wing Fire in Bethography today. I'm not sure which one I prefer - Shine or the geese. Still don't know...
