PHOTO - Dead Tarpon at Sunrise on Sanibel

Tossed up by the night tide, wonders and mysteries await those who leave the first footprints across the Sanibel shoreline at the break of dawn.  Platinum scales and dead tarpon eyes reflect the fiery sunrise, burning with defiant verve against the advancing waves of salty Gulf water and the sparkling cushions of wispy sea foam.  Imagine what those dead eyes have seen.  Revel in what my living eyes are seeing now.  Another glorious now with depth and poignancy to consider, but that's for later.  The job now is just being present...just being...just...
