Morning Glory

“Hello, sun in my face. Hello you who made the morning and spread it over the fields…Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness.” — Mary Oliver *   *   * Sunrise over Niantic Bay — Photo by Ron Jones, Niantic, CT © 2017

“Do you never doubt?

For just one minute? I wouldn’t blame you.” “No. And, before you ask, I don’t doubt that the sun will rise in the east, either.” From Downton Abbey discussion between Lord Granthams’s valet, Bates, and head housemaid, Anna. *  *  * Sunrise over Niantic Bay, photo by Jan Logozzo © 2015
