I sometimes get up early-before my 2 kids!! I do a bit of garden wandering and photography. Birds are about but not much else and it is peaceful and a calm beginning to usually a far from calm day! Hopefully regardless of what else happens afterwards, this moment of stillness and quiet will allow me to have some perspective about what follows.
But that is not why I do it, I just do it because in the moment I think it is so beautiful, little toadstools surrounded by grass blades decorated with dew drops...little secrets just waiting to be seen, to be appreciated...noticing.
