A Calm Green Lake Sunrise

Henry David Thoreau once wrote: “There are moments when all anxiety and stated toil are becalmed in the infinite leisure and repose of nature.”

In the early morning hours, Green Lake can be an oasis of calm when there’s frantic activity and traffic just a block or two away. I loaded up my kids early and took them to the glassy lakeside before school today to watch the changing shades of sunrise. If you’re a kid of the 1980s like myself, you might remember the following Ferris Bueller quote: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

How very prescient for our times.
