From my Chair: the evolution of a summer Seattle morning

Day 125 of Self Quarantine             Covid 19 Deaths in U.S.:  138,000

Most days I have the early morning to myself.

This morning I awake at 5am to the pinks and oranges of a July morning.

I grab my camera, a cup of coffee, and my iPad with Kindle reader to enjoy the early morning sunrise.

Over the next 45 minutes I enjoy the morning light show as the sun slowly rises over the Cascades, Seattle, and Mt. Rainier.

For 30 minutes, I rock and read and forget to look up.

Suddenly, I see the fog “masking up” Seattle.

Within another 15 minutes I am surrounded by the coolness of an enveloping fog creeping up the hill from the Puget Sound.  Then, the sun starts warming the fog and the moisture slowly recedes and becomes a marine layer of clouds.

In just a few more minutes, the mask over Seattle lifts.

My book reading is finished.  My coffee is finished.

It is time to start writing.

Glad to have you back dearly needed sunshine.
