When I woke up this morning, I saw this beautiful sunrise and the silhouette of a heron that appeared to be walking on water. What you don't see in the picture, which I edited extensively, is that it was low tide and there were several logs and branches just below the surface of the water supporting the heron.
It seemed to be a perfect metaphor for how we manage to stay afloat when life gets tough. Where would any of us be without support?
So, as I launch this new blog, I'd like to say thank you to my family, friends, co-workers, teachers, and all the people I meet who take the time to lend support in whatever way they know how, in good times and bad. I couldn't do it without you. None of us can.
It makes me feel like I'm walking on water.
