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.
And we’re off.
