Sunrise, After The Rain

by Jon Katz

Sunrise after a rain storm is especially beautiful around here, the air is fresh, the birds are singing their feathers off, the ground casts a special shadow. Red goes out to work every morning, just as he has his whole life. He can’t see or hear or move quickly, but he can still keep the sheep back near their barn until we get the hay out.

I think a lot of life is about just showing up. Red shows up every day.


  1. I think it’s said that showing up is 90% of life.
    This photo and what you wrote makes me think of Beethoven’s 6th symphony, the Pastoral.
