Weekly Photo Challenge : New

 

Dawning of a new day

Dawning of a new day

There is only one day left, always starting over: it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.

Jean-Paul Sartre

Sunrise on Burleigh beach

“I welcome this new day.
It is a gift to me, a new creation, a promise of resurrection.
Greetings to the Four Realms, the Goddesses and Gods, and the Kindred of Yore.
I salute the Sun, the Earth, the Seas, and the Sky.
I am thankful for being alive this morning.
Thankful for the sleep that has refreshed me.
May my hands do the good work.
May my eyes see the truth.
May I speak compassionately.
May I make the world a better place this day.
Awen.”
–ย  Ceisiwr Serith, Book of Pagan Prayer

  5. Absolutely beautiful Pomme – and I really love both quotes, but especially the “pagan prayer” – which doesn’t sound very pagan at all ๐Ÿ˜„

  6. I am getting slack too Pauline tomorrow I will bike down for a swim and take the camrera. You are invited, the water is 25c lately.

    Aah Pauline that IS gorgeous ! I can never work out why we can see so much of the distant clouds at those angles in the reflective waters but it really makes the whole scene encompassing .
    Something to do with physics and light bending but all a great puzzle to me Lol

    • I don’t get out of bed at that time very often Meg. I have more sunsets than sun rises. But that day it was special.
