Sunrise Palmela Village
(oil pastlel on paper)

I woke this morning early, and couldn't get back to sleep.I lay quietly for a while and tried to let all the fretting die down.

At around 5.30, the wedding guests arrived back. I heard the bus pulling in, people opening apartment doors. No more.

Still I couldn't sleep. I stepped onto the balcony, and watched the sun begin to lighten the sky.This is what I saw.
