AUG142009, originally uploaded by colemama.

Just as I was leaving the beach this morning, I heard a familiar 'cock-a-doodle-doo' in the air. This beach rooster was in hiding from general visibility, but his wake-up call certainly gave up his hiding place! Nevertheless, his arrogant cockiness is evident in the general attitude of this shot! Million dollar beachfront mansion owners tell me that he is there like clock-work every morning demanding breakfast...and usually they feel powerless to this one and provide tidbits (which naturally brings him back...after all, he's just looking for sustenance).

Though this morning's encounter was in daylight (and we seem to start school so early, it is often still dark), it is a reminder of the early morning jolt many students and teachers will soon face as school schedules renew after summer break. It is also a reminder of the importance attitude can play in the learning process, especially with some teens who cover a desire to be acknowledged with an exaggerated sense of importance! :) 3rd Ave N & Gulf of Mexico, Naples, FL
