I don’t have words adequate to this moment. Moments like this have stumped me before, made me mute. This time I will stumble through my thoughts, post my images, and hope something of what I’m feeling shines through.
It’s not just the fascination with how the light and color change moment to moment as the sun rises. It’s how the mass of humanity, among them the wealthiest and most powerful of the world, arrayed along the Upper East Side of New York City, are just a thin sliver along the horizon. They are made insignificant by the sky in its dance with the rising sun. This event which happens every day; it is a fundamental fact of our existence.
Its mystery abides.
It still strikes awe in my heart.
