Sunrise 6:12: Companion at dawn

The Dawn Jogger's will celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary later this week. On most mornings for the first 25 years they jogged together at dawn. That lovely ritual - valued by them both - ended in the fall of 2006 when the male DJ was diagnosed with glioma. The female DJ learned to run solo, the dawn scenes still a marvel but never quite as pretty when studied alone. This morning, they once again shared that long-time ritual, rising shortly after dawn and setting out to walk (the pace is not important) the Ameungy loop together (with a 45 minute stop for the 8:15 Taize service). There's about 15 hours of daylight in southern Burgundy at this time of year...
