Heaven gives its glimpses only to those
in no postion to look to close.
I took the picture above at sunrise yesterday morning from the hotel where I spent the weekend with the family in Hollywood Beach. Id gotten up early as I do every morning to do a little shore fishing with my Uncle Ismael and when I saw that sunrise, I had to run back to the room and grab the camera.
The picture does no justice to the overwhelming beauty of the scene I experienced at that moment. You cant smell the salt air. You cant hear the ocean’s whisper as it endlessly takes the shore to task. You cant feel sea breeze tickling your skin. You dont experience the thunderous silence of that moment.
Perhaps it’s just a coincidence that the same day I snapped a photograph of a sunrise fidel castro relinquished power in Cuba. Perhaps it’s just a coincidence that it may be a new day in Cuba soon. And perhaps, maybe, I was meant to be at that exact place at that exact moment at that exact time. Perhaps, but I dont really know.
What I do know and what I can say with absolute certainty is that that same sun in that picture will rise yet again tomorrow as it did yesterday and as it did today. It will, as always, turn darkness into light.
My hope is that the people in Cuba, millions of people that have been kept in the dark for nearly half a century, will finally get to see the light. Let the Cuban people finally be able to live a new day in perfect sunshine from without and from within.
Yes. Let there be light indeed.
