The sun also rises

Two coast live oaks, sunrise, near Stanford corral

It was one of those mornings where the clear Eastern sky showed little color as the sun rose. The Western sky, however, had a rose hue, as seen here behind a couple of deciduous oaks – not Coast Live Oaks as I earlier thought, which are evergreen.

Cassie and I are in our third day of RTDS (Return to Dawn Service), and did the 2.1 mile corral loop easily. I’m feeling good – only 5 seizures yesterday, including a spell from 4 PM yesterday until just past 7 AM today. (Woo hoo!)

It was cold when we rose, a bit under 40F, and there was frost on nearly every open patch of field or lawn. We met Kate, a plucky, British member of the dawn community, who gave me a hug and told me a cheery story about a neighbor with cancer who was twice told he had months to live, and is now 7 years past that prognosis. I like stories like that
