sunrise ~ 01/19/12 ~ at home

sunrise from home
January 19, 2012

We had a lovely amount of rain off and on since Thursday ~4:15pm, the same day this sunrise picture was taken. By Friday night with help from the wind, our salty, ocean-mist covered windows finally had some cleaning. I really should park my car outside the garage so I can take advantage of nature's free car wash.

News, personal, and online stuff have been a bit... erm, different in the past week. I'd like to think I'm not the only one experiencing this. I've been wanting to update my indices and correct past blog posts, but blogger has been temperamental. Then, I'm still trying to find the right balance of what personal notes to share on Nature ID. Am I sharing enough to make a post interesting, or am I sharing too much (better known as TMI)? And, I won't even get started with the news.

Like the sunrise of a new day and like the declarations for a new year, it's comforting to believe starting fresh and new can actually happen. Here's a great time-lapse video of Yosemite to remind me and perhaps you, too, how the daily conditions of humans are truly insignificant compared to the larger picture: http://io9.com/5878091/this-time+lapse-video-of-yosemite-is-staggeringly-beautiful.

Hey, Mrs Mysterious, look after you and yours and only share what you're comfortable with :o)

Many thanks for the Yosemite link. Stunning isn't the half of it. Wow!

Oh, and Hurrah for the rain!

There is so much to ID in this post!

Context is important...

Perspective helps order one's priorities...

True significance is transcendent ...

Thank you for sharing, Katie.

Nice! If I could transplant your sunrise to my mountain, I'd be a happy camper. :)

Hey thanks for stopping by my derelict blog. Beautiful sunset. And that time lapse of Yosemite is incredible. Thanks for sharing it.

Graeme, I'm not mysterious; I'm just in 2 months-long foul mood and wont to complain about everything under the sun.

Jeannette, and thank you, too.

John, it's supposed to be sunny this coming weekend, so maybe you'll have better luck catching a picturesque sunrise. Although, I find some cloud cover makes for prettier sunrises and sunsets. Oh, and thanks for the google Chrome hint. I may have to switch from Firefox so I can utilize all of google blogger's features.

Mr. T, I imagine you get some decent sunrises in your neck of the woods.

Jennifer, if we wait until summer to take our morning walks, you could just stay up an extra hour or two to join me.

Brad, looking forward to some more posts from you.
