I rose this morning at 5 and the sky was already growing light, the birds already stirring. I made coffee and met friend Carol to greet the Solstice sun at Calvert Manor, reputed to be a site where John Smith and Pocahantas made camp in 1608. Clouds prevailed, preventing a direct view of the solar orb, but that did nothing to dampen the beauty of the morning, as you can see in the following photographs.

the Great Blue

The Morning of the World – moments before, deer ran across under the trees.
