Tuesday’s Sunrise: Distant Ship

Although it is practically impossible to see it, there is a ship that is sailing out on the horizon, right in front of the sunrise.

Oh how I wish I was able to get a picture close enough for you to see what I saw!  It was magical!  The sun was slowly rising, and I could see the smoke/steam (or what appeared to be) coming from the back of the ship as it sailed past the sun.

The song that comes to mind with this very sight is Pink Floyd’s, “Comfortably Numb”:

A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon……….

Can you imagine what that must look like for those on the ship?  I sometimes wonder why people would want a career sailing the Great Lakes with what can only be described a litany of nasty weather at this time of year.  However, when a ship safely begins to careen past a sunrise, I’m sure the crew must say, “This is why what we do makes it all worthwhile.”

Well, perhaps they don’t say that at all!  But I think I would.

I hope your day is smooth sailing!
