just this morning

The horizon line can be hard to come by in Memphis because of its thick canopy of trees.  (My city is so lush.)  The Mississippi River sets the stage for beautiful sunsets, but finding an open expanse of eastern sky is harder to come by.  Last week we were at Shelby Farms and there it was.  I turned to James and said, "We should come out here and watch the sunrise sometime."

Early yesterday morning I feel a gentle nudge.  "Remember when you said we should go out to Shelby Farms to watch the sunrise?"  We got there about ten minutes after the sun had hit the horizon, but it was still gorgeous. Mist was everywhere. The quiet of the city and early morning light was so amazing that decided to do it again this morning.  Today we got there right on time.
