I wanted to wake up early enough to take a picture of the earliest sunrise we see here in the valley. It happens on the first day of spring, when the sun rises almost directly in the east, at the bottom of the V formed by the two hills. Technically, the sun had already risen a bit, by the time I had opened my eyes and found my camera. But, it's a very-close-to-sunrise picture. And, technically, officially, it is spring again.
The heddle eyes are what I'll be looking through for most of the rest of the day, threading linen for window weaves on my old Norwegian barn loom. Plain weave, spaced warp, unbleached and half-bleached. My favorite flavors!
