When I start out it is about 740am, the sun is peaking over the trees and there may or may not be a bit of fog. The trees stand in silhouette against the lightening sky. I have always loved the contrast of their solidity vs the clouds above, it makes me pause before moving on.
As the sun rises I am aware of the landscape around me. Fields tilled under, fences and silos; I am in the country again on a dirt road. A larg portion of my life has been spent on roads like this one and though there are things I love about the city, I find I miss the sound of frog singing, dog barking and birds rising with the sun.
I listen to the frogs sing and wonder and the beauty of their voices. In the half light I am the observer instead of the observed.
I had forgotten how beautiful the beginning of a day could be. How peaceful and serene, the world can be beyond the hustle and business we make for ourselves.
