on the edge of the city
peacefully dawning

  1. Maybe it’s just because of some things that I have been mulling over today but the beautiful photo and refreshing poem inspired the thought that I wish we humans treated each other more like we treat dawns — as something to see the beauty of, to take inspiration from, but unthinkable to possess, unthinkable to harm.

    Thanks for sharing, Carol.

    1. Fascinating, thought-provoking reflections, Paul. I wonder whether we could learn to view ourselves that way, too. It seems a necessary foundation for seeing others as beautiful and “unthinkable to harm.”

      Thank you so much for sharing your insights and kind words.

      1. “View ourselves that way”? That’s an excellent idea! Like treating oneself as one would a friend. There seems to be quite a bit that can be said along these lines, Carol. I feel in need of getting together with you in a nice coffee shop! 🙂

        I wrote a poem today based on the theme. Please feel no obligation to check it out, but if you freely want to, it’s here:

  2. Lovely Carol. Alas, I have lived in cities, including NYC and had my fill. I love watching the sunrise over the vineyards and hills in my little Mediterranean village… The sunsets are quite spectacular as well…
