Aurora / Eos | Goddess of the Dawn ☀️ The daughter of the Titan Hyperion and the Titaness Theia, sister of the sun god (Helios) and the moon goddess (Selene). By the Titan Astraeus, she was the mother of the winds (Zephyrus, Notus, and Boreas), and of the evening star (Hesperus).
With her rosy-fingers, Aurora is said to wake each morning to open the gates of heaven so the sun may rise. And by some accounts, her tears create the morning dew.
Not frequently enough do I enjoy the rising sun. Yesterday I captured a moment. This was my morning grace ... “Dear Aurora, guardian of the light, may I be ever so grateful for the gifts you bring: the warm, golden heat - however faint it may be - and the soft, downy light. With luminescence and faith, may I embrace gentler ways of simplicity, nature, and hearth. Forever grateful for another day. I miss my Maggie Mae.”
