    The house is quiet and no one needs anything

    from me. My daughter, who now has kids of her own, told me she now understands why I used to "look at her like that" when she got up early as a child.

    I wake up at about 5 AM everyday

    because u dog needs to go potty about then. Sometimes I go right back to bed, but other times I relax and meditate or walk around in my backyard as the stars fade away and the sun peeks up from beyond the horizon.

    The title says it all.

    Getting up from bed, the cool quietness, the hot coffee. I love it all.

    Morning Song

    I fell asleep last night with the windows open, when I awoke I greeted by a symphony of birds singing in the early morning. I lay there in bed just listening to them thinking how beautiful it sounded.  The sun had just crept up over the horizon and the light was muted by a...

    The Moment

    There is a moment early in the morning When we first awaken A moment; subtle, mysterious, wild So infinitesimally unconscious That we rarely (n)ever capture it Or seldom so Before our perspective shuts out heartsight Leaving us blinded by a radiant illusion A moment when our soul...

    Especially in summer,

    I like to wake up early, maybe 5 am and it's already light out and most of my neighbourhood is asleep. I'll make a coffee and sit out on the small deck behind my house and listen to my small city wake up....a dog walker passes by at 5:45. A neighbour fires up his noisy diesel...

    Just before the dawn.

    All is quiet in the country. Just before the hustle and bustle of the cars and the crowds. Just me and slow wake of the earth. A beautiful song with each part awakening. A breath of life to the still and quiet. A feeling that anything is possible. It is beautiful.

    This Morning

      I realize that I write about early mornings repetitively, but, I am so excited about the dawning of a new day, I have no restraint. What possibilities lay ahead and how can I make this day count in truly meaningful ways? This morning is black; still, I can make out a fine icy...

    I wake up at five, grab my yoga mat

    and lay it outside. The morning air fills my lungs with fresh air as I take a while to sit. As I exhale, I let out a deep, solid "ohm." Good morning!

    My favorate times are getting to the woods just

    as the sun is coming up. The trees are grey and solemn in the early morning light. I like knowing the whole day is ahead and that I can go anywhere in these woods, on this mountain.

    It's a beautiful, sunny morning.

    I've opened the windows to the front yard and I'm greeted with the wonderful scent of lilacs. It's so much better than seeing the skunk walk around in our back yard. I just might keep those windows closed.

    The best time to get anything done.

    Shopping at five or six AM is the best time to load up a cart, get through the checkout, back to the truck, in, out and done. And then as the world awakens, if you have to do banking, mail, the DMV, public offices of any kind, the earlier the better. No lines anywhere, minimal...

    I Accomplish More In the Early Mornings

    Early mornings seem to work best for me.  My mind seems to be at it's peak, and my energy level is highest then.  As the day goes on, I get tired and don't want to do much of anything. So, yes, early mornings are best, especially in the spring and summer, when I bring...
