  • Yesterday morning I walked to the river near my house in order to witness the "emerging" day. I use that term because that's exactly what it was. When I first arrived it was still quite dark, so much so that I could barely see across. But slowly, I saw the light and everything started to become clear. Have you ever experienced a moment like this? They can happen so quickly that you'll miss them if you're not paying attention (or if you're not willing venture out while it's still a little dark).
