I woke up this morning at 7:20 am, without an alarm clock. And it's Sunday. For me, that's EARLY.
But as early as it was, I felt rested, even after 6 or so hours of sleep. Coming from someone who needs 7-8 hours, that's unusual. It must be the morning sunshine, the warmth pouring into my bedroom and onto my skin. This is what waking up should be.
I checked the time and couldn't believe that it was only 7 in the morning. I thought maybe the power went off sometime during the night and my clock was wrong. I checked the time on my cell phone. Yes, it was 7:20.
Today, the first of March, holds the promise of spring, the coming warmth, longer days, and baby leaves.
I get up and look for my camera.
Two hours later...
It is a quiet morning, save for the sound of the camera clicking. It is a morning meant for taking pause. Forgotten tea.
