This was the view out my office window this morning.
It was a little after 7. Still dark enough out that the street lamps were on, blazing brightly.
The construction site down the way had lights on as well. Not as bright from this distance, but enough to get them going in the dark. I’d just gotten in, but these workers had clearly been at it for awhile. The whole area was abuzz with the dull hum of machinery.
Just beyond that was a brilliant flash of orange and red. The sun was rising. A reflection from my view.
The world was alive. It was beautiful.
I took a picture.
