Snapshot of Sunrise

Nothing is more beautiful than the lovliness of the woods before sunrise. ~ George Washington Carver.

This morning I was greated by the awakening of the sun as it stretched behind the trees.  The photo doesn’t do it justice, but it was the best I could do with my cell phone from inside my car on the way to work.

I wanted to stay, to park, and sit, and watch the sun make its grand entrance across the sky on this first day of spring.  I wanted to stay because I knew that the sun would not be visible for long as clouds are forecasted to be rolling in ahead of the fourth Nor’easter to hit this region in the past three weeks. I wanted to stay, but instead settled for catching glimpses of pink in my rearview mirror as I journyed on to school.

I am growing weary of winter, but Mother Nature doesn’t seem to care much about my feelings.  She has decided that winter is not over yet despite the date on the calendar.

Even though it might sound like a complaint and show signs of impatience, I love the change of seasons.  I cannot imagine living somewhere where I did not experience all four seasons and the natural beauty that comes with each one.

I love living in Pennsylvania!
