While going through some older photos to find a new birthday card image, I came across this photo of the early morning at Point Bonita in the Marin Headlands. The moment I saw it, I was transported back to that morning. I relived the feeling of the early morning sun as it rose on the horizon ahead of me. I cherished the bracing scent of a briny ocean mist mixed with the pungent perfume of the wild sage plants that grew around me. I recalled the ubiquitous morning-song of the birds in the fields, led by a chorus of White-throated sparrows who commanded the spotlight. And, I remembered that outside of those songs, there was a serene silence buffered only by the crashing tide against the distant cliffs below me. 

 

Such is the power of a photograph. It is a touchstone for the mind, bringing with its viewing all the memories and feelings that existed when it was created. I have thousands of such cornerstones. It is a blessing that God has bestowed upon me to love the art of photography and the desire to share that love with others.  The gift humbles me while reminding me of His great love and glory. 

 

I remain His scribe.
