The day begins. It’s 2 degrees. Lying there is cold. It’s a great time to get up.
After all, things happen fast on a rotating planet. Why, 3 minutes later, something great is beginning, you just know it.
Yes, time to run up the esker to greet the lake as the sun takes it away. Bye, lake!
But be prepared to be taken away yourself. Here is a Douglas fir, revealing its aura in this magical, watery light.
And here is the sun, focussing down to a circular rainbow. That’s me projected as a shadow into it. Focussed like that, over 135,000,000 kilometres. Now, that’s cool.
Imagine starting your day at the centre of the sun.
With the spirit of a tree.

I found this in* Joseph and His Brothers* by Thomas Mann. A character says, “What he believed was that the Spirit of God–what the people of Shinar called* Mummu*–had brooded over the waters of chaos and created the world through his Word. He thought: Just think of it! The world had come to be by the Word, the free and external Word, and, even today still, although a thing might be present, it was not actually present in truth till man bestowed existence to it with the word and gave it a name.” cg
