In the morning everything is still and clear. I love this time of the day, at least when I take a moment to pause and really enjoy it. When I draw open the thick burgundy curtains darkening my living room, I get my first view of the morning light outside on my deck. The little plants are green and flowering, the thick redwood trees wrap behind my condo and sway in the breeze. Squirrels race and leap from one branch to another, finches flutter and chirp, the occasional butterfly floats by.
My two cats twitch their tails and chirp with excitement, peering through the glass panes at the wonders beyond. I pause, exhale, and give silent thanks for the wonders that surround me each and every day.
