Gator'sTriple Play ~ Life Is Eternal ~

As I returned home from the west coast this weekend I was in awe to see something quite different and decided to take a detour past the coast for the photo below..  

It was a Very early morning sunrise with the sun rising over the water instead of setting over the sea as it does from my location. This gorgeous new morning brought to my mind a song and I could not help but sing this song to myself as I watched a new day begin. I hope that you enjoy it too.

((((((((Life is Eternal))))))))

(Carly Simon/Teesa Gohl)

I've been doing a lot of thinking
About growing older and moving on
Nobody wants to be told that they're getting on
And maybe going away
For a long, long stay
But just how long and who knows
And how and where my spirit will go
Will it soar like Jazz on a saxophone
Or evaporate on a breeze
Won't you tell me please
That life is eternal
And love is immortal
And death is only a horizon
Life is eternal
As we move into the light
And a horizon is nothing
Save the limit of our sight
Save the limit of our sight

Here on earth I'm a lost soul
Ever trying to find my way back home
Maybe that's why each new star is born
Expanding heaven's room
Eternity in bloom
And will I see you up in that heaven
In all it's light will I know you're there
Will we say the things that we never dared
If wishing makes it so
Won't you let me know
That life is eternal
And love is immortal
And death is only a horizon
Life is eternal
As we move into the light
And a horizon is nothing
Save the limit of our sight
Save the limit of our sight

  3. Glad you took the detour and shared this beautiful sunrise with us. Our place faces east so we see our sunrises much more than the sun sets. Barns and other things block the sunset views.

  7. Wrongly accused of breaking the law I battled for a month before receiving my final warning.
    They would not tell me what I had done and I told them I had done nothing wrong.
    Someone asked me to write a comic series for a TV channel and I was in trouble there too since I refused to go on TV.
    With these two events occurring at the same time I developed Shingles across my face and eye.
    At this low point I received proof of a power unknown before.
    When challenging the possibility the same proof was re-enacted in a different location.
    I too believe.
