MARTA MORTON—HARBOUR CLUB VILLAS

This surreal shot of a late-autumn sunset was captured by Marta Morton overlooking the Harbour Club Villas and Marina docks at South Side

Marina.

Sunrise, Sunset

As I was looking at this photo, one of the songs from the musical “Fiddler on the Roof” came to mind: “Sunrise,

sunset; Sunrise, sunset; Swiftly fly the years; One season following another; Laden with happiness and tears.” That’s

how I feel these days, as time speeds by and the people and places near and dear to me change.

I think that’s why the late autumn’s sunlight brings me such joy. It starts with the slow arrival of dawn, marked by

a conch-shell pink tint to the sky, deepening to rose-red at the tops of the billowing clouds at the horizon. Afternoons

are dipped in gold, the sun painting everything in sight with a burnished beauty. These scenes always remind me

of my belief that the God of creation is a master. Nothing humans create comes close to the glorious splendor of

the natural world. This shouts of the existence of a good God, a God of love, a God who will never change. And that

brings me great comfort.

Whenever I count my blessings, living in the Turks & Caicos Islands and having this job come near the top of the

list. I revel in being able to showcase this country’s “Beautiful by Nature” portraits and stories in each issue. May this

issue bring you the same joy, beauty and wonder.
