This was taken on my last Monday in Jacksonville, FL (29 August 2016). It was one of over 100 pictures I took that morning. I loved how the sun hit the clouds, the waves rolled up onto the beach and the wind blowing hard enough to wipe things clean.

It was the dawn of a new day. I started that day with a fresh start. That’s what happened today . . . I started it with a fresh start

Before going to sleep, I share my positive thought for today:
