I stare and stare. It seems I was called for this: To glorify things just because they are.



  • Daybreak. 4:53 to 5:17 am, April 24, 2021. 47° F. Calf Pasture Beach, Norwalk, CT
  • Post Title by Czeslaw Milosz, from “Blacksmith Shop“: At the entrance, my bare feet on the dirt floor, Here, gusts of heat; at my back, white clouds. I stare and stare. It seems I was called to this: To glorify things just because they are.”


  1. These are gorgeous, DK….it must have been hard to leave the spot where you took the last one. Hope the walking is getting easier these days. MA

  2. Oh man, my limitation with the English language is painfully obvious, for I keep offering the same adjectives over and over again – I will add a new one about – the first couple are ethereal – and they all are magnificent

  8. The first time I read your title I read it as, “I stare and share’ — and thought – how wonderful you do!
    Stare and stare is equally as wonderful — and then the face you share what you experience is a beautiful invitation to pause, rest and breathe.
    A lovely way to begin and experience my day — pause, rest, breathe.
    Thank you!

  11. I was staring too – that tree in the 2nd one – ‘a bush on fire’ – but all three are a treat and a great eye candy. Love the quote too. We’re just back from an surprise visit we paid to friends we hadn’t seen in a while – went with two bottles of bubbly and sat outside, happily remaking the world, enjoying the shade and the sun, such peace and wonderment.

  13. This is beautiful! That orange/yellow/gold dome rising in the background – is that the sun?! If it isn’t I sure want it to be. I love to see the morning through your eyes.
