“The Edge of Light”

Sunrise is very special to me.  I went to the top of the Trail Ridge Road (over 12,000 feet high) recently for a sunrise experience.  It was the last weekend in June and at 5:30 a.m. at 12,000 feet high the temperature had to be close to “0” degrees.  The wind was so intense that I could barely open my car door against it.  I had to be very careful with my tripod and equipment and my fingertips felt close to frostbite.  Yet, the experience was exhilarating.  There I was seemingly on top of the world experiencing the first light of the day on the Rocky Mountains.  It was exciting; it was beautiful; it was spiritual; it was peaceful.  It was as though I was watching the hand of God touch the earth creating light, goodness and new opportunities for spiritual growth.  God was reminding me of the moment of choice, the edge of light, to create a new response to an old problem or to stay embedded in old beliefs and perceptions that do not work in life.   I felt so insignificant and significant at the same time.  Captured in the experience of this edge of light, I also felt blessed and indeed grateful, too.  It almost made me feel warm…


    • You are absolutely right, Helen. The experience was well worth the inconvenience.
