Day 18 - Light
I don't know if it's knowing that spring is just around the corner (at least I hope) or if it's because of the time change, but I have been noticing the spectacular skies in the morning on my drive to work. I have taken a few pictures but didn't really know what I would do with them. I just liked them.
Today, as I snapped another picture, I started thinking about my OLW for 2014. Back in January, I chose my word, wrote about it, even wrote a poem about it, but I haven't returned to it much since then. My word this year is "light" and the beautiful sky this morning with the bright orange sun just barely peeking out above the tree line made me think of it again.
I can make several different connections here and since I can't pick one...you get a snapshot of all of them! First, there is the fact that winter is ending and spring is coming...the sky I have been noticing is like the "light" at the end of the tunnel...finally! Next, there is the "light" that is beginning to pop up above some of my struggling student's heads lately. It's that time of year when things are really starting to click for some of them! Third, there is the shift in the time change that makes it possible for me to see the sunrise. For so long I woke in the dark, drove to work in the dark and even drove home in the dark many times. Now, I get to see the "light" of morning again! Finally, there is the "light" of a new day dawning that is just amazing. It always makes me feel good when I think about a new day starting and all the new opportunities that come along with it.
Here are a couple of the pictures I have taken lately. I hope you are able to find some light today too.
