I awoke very early this morning, which is my new routine as I try to squeeze everything I can into my days lately. But today, I actually have to leave the house early for an appointment. It was still dark outside when I stumbled down the stairs and began the morning routine of shower and tea. I was thrilled to see that once again the weather forecasters got it wrong – and the snow that they had predicted for the overnight has still not arrived. As I often do, I took my mug out to the porch with me and spent a little time in the quiet dawn of the day.

It is a beautiful morning. The sky was just beginning to brighten the crimson ribbons illuminating the low thin clouds and grey-blue-black sky. In the distance a cardinal and a robin sang the sweetest of bird calls to offer the only sounds that were noticeable. The temperature is definitely cool, but it isn’t too cold outside today, it’s pleasant actually, hinting toward warmer days and the advent of spring.

I just sat there quietly taking it all in – the beautiful sky at sunrise, the bird song and the stillness of the pre-dawn moments. I was thinking about how nourished it makes me feel to just notice these quiet moments, the simple gifts of nature and the quietness of my pre-active breathing. My time is limited though, I really do have to go but just wanted to share my gratitude for this quiet start to my day and hope that I can carry that stillness with me through the activities that lie ahead. Wishing you a peaceful start to your day and calm silence and beauty that you can find wherever you are today.
