Wanderlust, originally uploaded by ookami_dou.

I love mornings. They are filled with possibilities, that beautiful feeling of being on the cusp. And I love ships. Being aboard an oceangoing ship is almost like having wings. One is untethered to dry land and the vast ocean unfurls with its seemingly endless and uncharted prospects.
Need I say that I love this striking photo from the mid 1920s? Imagine the glorious feeling of leaning over the rail of this liner (the Columbus) as the sun rose over the sea. I can smell the salt air and feel the teak beneath my feet as I step into the world of the photographer.

"I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain."
~The Shawshank Redemption

Isn't that what we embark on every morning?
May your journey today be one of discovery and beautiful moments of grace and gratitude.
