Photographer's Note

At dawn on a relatively warm summer day, we took a whale-watching excursion from Skagway, Alaska. A photograph I posted at the time appears at "Thar she blows...". Of course, what makes this photograph special is the backdrop.

Although I am an inveterate listener to classical music, I do have a few popular favorites. Years ago when I was at Oxford, the Greek-English singer, Cat Stevens, came to perform in the historic Oxford Playhouse at 11-12 Beaumont St. His program included one of my favorites: "Morning Has Broken," to listen, and if you'd like to sing along the lyrics appear below:

"Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world
Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass..."

Since I am incapable of carrying a tune, I will just listen to Cat Stephens. If you enjoyed "Dawn has broken..." let the Youtube program continue, and listen to him singing "It's a wild, wild world."
