Sunrise on the Obelisk

Part of the magic of first light is the dramatic way that sunrise spreads its powerful luminance over the dark's grim clutch on the world. It is one of the most vivid demonstrations of hope that I know of and a daily metaphor of the cycle of our lives.

The dichotomy was intensely illustrated when a lone obelisk, standing proud and strong in the foreground of the Dragoon mountain landscape, allowed the sun to emerge from its spire. Here, in the parched high desert of southern Arizona, like a lighthouse from the distant ocean shores, it shone a guiding beacon that carried a message straight to my heart - the light of the world is coming, and all will be alright.

I remain his scribe.
