I woke up before the sunrise today. It was dark and quiet and peaceful. Everything felt still, and while getting ready, I didn’t feel the slightest bit rushed. The world was shaded in early-morning blue when I left for work, and upon getting settled at my desk, my peaceful heart remained. I savored the slow, steady start to my morning, enjoying the quiet of a mostly empty office.
Later, when the sun poured out of the sky, I felt a slight warming up to winter. I like the blue and gray winter skies, especially with touches of golden sunshine, and the way the dark and delicate tree branches are a stark contrast to their lightness.
Perhaps I’ll wake up early tomorrow, too.
