"So Far Away"

I have taken to sleeping with my eastside curtains open so I can see when the sun is coming up. The birds give me a little nudge with their morning greetings but it is so soft and sweet, it doesn't really wake me. The bright sun, however, usually does.
This morning I was up in a panic at 5:30. I looked out the window and the sky was aglow in red! I got my SSS on (shorts, shirt and shoes) and beat feet to the beach just after it turned from glow red to blue. I was about two minutes too late. I guess I could have ran but I was holding onto my coffee and wearing flip-flops with my eyes half-opened. Not a good combo for sunrise chasing. Oh well, mañana, there's always tomorrow (we think).

I did stop on the way back to get a photo of these wonderful guanabana fruits growing in a tree near my house. They are HUGE and cause the branch limbs to bend with their weight. If you've never tried one, you must. They are delicious.

This song is dedicated to my family and friends "so far away".
Thanks for calling me John. I love you and Alfie and your mom.
To my sister Sulie, may God be with you and your family in your time of need.
"It would be so fine to see your face at my door."

I saw your friend John's name on a For Sale sign but I was driving too fast to take down his number. I'm going to call to introduce myself.

What's with the early mornings?
