I woke up at 7:00 and thought about getting up early to watch dawn break from the east edge of town. The metaphor of light coming in from Europe and washing over this lovely place while on its way to America and points west appealed to me.
But being warm under the cover appealed to me, too.
And before I knew it it was after 8 and light out. Marty (the plush moose) was mocking me from the window.
I really want to watch the dawn, though. Maybe I’ll force myself to do that tomorrow.
I did go back to the east edge of town and take some panorama and ultra wide photos, trying to get a sense of the scope of the fjord. (I realize trying to get a sense of the fjord may be something that’s ultimately impossible, but I won’t let that stop me from trying.)
Here are a few of the panos from this morning:
Then I came up to the Fish Factory and the sun had come out. It was actually too sunny for a while in the room I’ve been working in that has the big windows and the great view.
So I went downstairs to the main studio room, worked for a few hours, then headed back up. With the sun safely behind the mountains on the other side of the fjord, I was able to finish the tenth story I’ve written here in ten days.
From the upstairs window looking out on the fjord, I spotted a fishing boat coming in from a day’s work. Hope they had as good a day as I did.
I set a very ambitious schedule for myself, but so far I seem to be meeting all my internal deadlines.
Also, doesn’t the Fish Factory look cool at night?
