Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sun drenched, beautifully cool and calm island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this amazing Sunday morning, the twenty-sixth day of October, 2014, a day that you say, if you happen to live on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age, “…God (Infinite Creative Universe if you prefer, at least something a little bigger than ‘me’), it’s good to be alive.”
p.s., thank you for this wonderful planet, I hope we don’t muck it up any more than we have already!”
I woke early as usual this morning, to a day that is one for the record books as it were. For as I was capturing an image above Hyannis Harbor around eight a.m., I met a fellow photographer who happened to be a Massachusetts State Policeman, a veteran of 35 years with a summer home in Dennis, a great town just north of the hub Hyannis. As we spoke, it occurred to me that I really enjoyed this man’s company, in fact, we had a lot in common. We both liked taking picture of sunrises on beaches all over this incredible ‘place in time’–timeless rather, a much better word to describe such a magical place…
We are all one in reality, and we live as one people on one planet. A tough road to hoe for many. The fact this little sand bar and the gorgeous islands that act as accessories may look far different than they do now (in say 100 years), leaves little time to fuss and fight my friends. Eventually putting aside our many differences, petty in comparison to the gravity of LOVE we all have for places such as the Cape Cod National Seashore. In those green, green marsh lands lies the answer to all of man’s ills. In peace still live the Great Blue Heron, the Snowy Egret, the Marsh Hawk, the Cardinal, the Greater Black Back, the Kingfisher, and the sea crow…all needing that shelter as much as man needs a bed to lay his head. In the hopes he will SEA yet another morning miracle of a new day on this little blue rock called planet Earth.
Have a great morning everybody and a even better tomorrow!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
