Henry David Thoreau describes the morning as the heroic ages revisited. He writes about this sacred time in his novel, Walden:
"The morning, which is the most memorable season of the day, is the awakening hour. Then there is least somnolence in us; and for an hour, at least, some part of us awakes which slumbers all the rest of the day and night.”
Calling the morning-tide a "season of the day" strikes a wonderful chord with us as morning lovers and early risers. It's in those moments that we can welcome the day with the sun, courageous towards what lies ahead.
We followed one of our managers, Clark, on his early morning opening for our first photoblog we're calling BARRACK23 after our building in Liberty Station - the 23rd naval training barrack built in the 1920s.
