Morning Prayer on the bluff...

Went for an early morning ride to the bluffs overlooking the
Mississippi River north of LaCrescent, MN. Great place
for prayer.

Heard a few large creatures clearing their throats somewhere
out there in the woods. Beautiful morning; great way to start the day!!!

    I often contemplate, but in the evenings, or sometimes during a lazy afternoon, sitting somewhere by the water. Mornings are too early for me, unless I stay up later . . .

    I know you like to see the sunrise through the mist. I am more a sunset person

  2. Dear Dan:

    There is no better time to contemplate anything than the birth of a new day, when the mists of the night are cleared by the light and warmth of the rising sun (son). Today, I will listen to Gregorian chants and delve into the more structured aspects of Catholic prayer, for the soul of a friend who left suddenly.

    Great pictures.

    Fondest regards,
    Jack/reep

    I think life in the monastery has accustomed me to early morning.
    But evening can be good too. One of my favorite times there is 7:30PM Night Prayer, called "Compline". You can listen to it here:
