Stolen Moments


Enjoy the many beauties along the way.  Taste every moment of your daily life.  ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Something woke me up around 5:00 this morning.  Earlier than necessary, but why not?  I got up, prepared some coffee and switched on the radio.  After the weather forecast I turned it off in favor of silence.

Quietly leaving the house, I make my way to the 24-hour breakfast place.  Blossoms on the trees shimmer in the early morning mist.  The empty streets echo with the birds’ symphony.

“Hi sweetheart, how are you?”  A smile and complimentary coffee.  So much goodness in the world I can hardly stand it.

Back on the sidewalk, I zip my fuzzy pink jacket against the cool air.  There’s something magical about a city just before it comes to life.  Slow your mind, open your heart and let the beauty of it all wash over you.

“Heyyyy, Mami…crank?”

And we’re off.
