Up early reflecting

Leave a comment

I love starting the day before sunrise, even in the summer when it’s up early. It’s a good time for reflection. One because few are up to savior the quiet and wonder of that first light. The sounds of nature are starting another day.

I was listening to some friends snore while writing this. I’ve already showered and been out for a walk and some morning shooting.

And while I can’t say there is always time for rest, I’d rather be a bit tired and not miss the morning wonderments than sleep in.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The day is young for too many thoughts.
  • The smoke is clearing. We can see and breathe again.
  • Find things to look at that make you smile.
  • Nothing better than a juicy cheeseburger fresh off the grill.
  • Well, breakfast the following day could be better after staying up too late.

I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
