The Morning and the Evening

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Genesis 1:5

Part of a projected series The Morning and the Evening, which currently includes this book, Firmament and Ocean. The series uses the first verses of Genesis dealing with the Creation as a structure to produce a series of works.


A snowstorm in New Jersey has made the passage from Philadelphia to Montclair difficult, and I am passing some of the time in the passenger seat taking pictures and noting how even a relatively minor journey like this seems to take on transcontinental implications when any difficulty sets in. All of a sudden an everyday car journey is a Lewis and Clark expedition!

Lewis and Clark made celestial observations as they made their journeys, and I have included the names of some of the stars they might have observed in the book. These are paired with the lights of cars coming and going on the interstate as they pass through the cold darkness from city to city.

The series will eventually offer a book for each of the six days of the creation.
