2021—Here Thumbs the Sun

A

The misty morning haze turned the sky red as the sun rose behind East Mitten Butte and created quite a spectacular view from my balcony on the third floor of The View Hotel in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. As the sun got closer to East Mitten I realized it would “rest” for a brief moment atop the mitten’s thumb. The most streamed Beatles song, “Here Comes the Sun” was “streaming” through my head as I watched the sun’s morning ecliptic through the sky. Only the words in my head were, “Here Thumbs the Sun.”
