Morning Walk

photo from utahskies.org. I don’t have the equipment to take pictures like this, plus I was out to exercise and be in Nature, not to take pictures

The waning crescent Moon rose low in the Southeastern sky, Venus shining brilliantly three fingers ahead of it, two of many lights in the night sky. Then the Eastern horizon lightened and the Sun rose until only it and these two remained.

We are a part of this great cosmic dance of bright and dark, shining and fading and shining again, rising and setting and rising again.

I like sleeping in, but I really like walking outside at dawn.

About John Beckett

I’m a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. I’m an ordained priest in the Universal Gnostic Fellowship. I’m the Coordinating Officer of the Denton, Texas Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. This year I’m also serving as a member of the Board of Trustees of CUUPS National. I’m a member of the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
