“Wherefore, O ye beloved of God, offer up thanks that ye have, in the day of the dawning, turned your faces unto the Light of the World and beheld its splendours. Ye have received a share of the light of truth, ye have enjoyed a portion of those blessings that endure forever; and therefore, as a returning of thanks for this bounty, rest ye not for a moment, sit ye not silent, carry to men’s ears the glad tidings of the Kingdom, spread far and wide the Word of God”
amy: i wait for that dawn light eagerly on sunday mornings, standing quietly by the window in the kitchen, camera in hand, leaning againt the window frame, my head tilted sideways, up to the sky. everyone else has crawled back into bed. slippered feet on hard linoleum floors, i wait, surprisingly patient, watching the skies brighten, the brick wall across the shaft progressively light up, waiting for it to creep towards me, to light up the subject of my photo.
anjali: my mind has been occupied with thoughts of growth and renewal today–new projects with limitless potential, the emerging signs of a new season, and the tangible feeling of change. i drink cool spring air in wide gulps and marvel at my friend’s ever-growing belly, filled with delight and reverence for the new life we will soon welcome into this world.
leila: a cosy day at home for the most part, today; it snowed again this morning. in seattle! in march! then we went out for a walk in the wind and got caught in a hail storm. it’s raining through the sunlight right now, i wonder whether we’ll have a rainbow before it gets really dark. insert Four Seasons In One Day metaphor here.
