It's nice and peaceful waking up before everyone else. Almost as if the worlds flurried thoughts are at a stand still. Slowed by sleep and brightened by a day with new beginnings. There is a zen like quiet that fills the ears. To listen is blissful.
This is when I sit and ponder. Sipping sweet tea from an oversized mug, moistening my night parched palette. The only talking going on comes from the chatter of birds. Even the dogs are asleep. A time without disruption.
No ringing phones. No dogs scratching at the door. No falling behind with the demands of the day's activities. At this time nothing needs to happen. A moment without expectation. Just being here, sitting in a ray of sunlight. The very purest calm.
