sunrise, 5:25 am


Up on the cliff, you can lie at night, watching the dark sky — feeling, paradoxically perhaps, a closeness to the stars that, ultimately, encompasses a closeness to the earth. And knowing, for a brief moment, that there’s nothing more to ask for. It’s all there — between me and the universe.

It’s been a warm August week, presumably summer’s parting gift. The rocks, charged during the day by the rays of the sun, still emit some of the heat hours after sunset.

(A few more new pics to be seen, by the way, over at flickr.)
