Good Morning

It’s not that early in the morning – just 7:30 – but it’s early enough that I’m the only one awake.  I’ve been up for about an hour now and I spent most of it at my computer working on another piece about the Japan earthquake and its aftermath.  Where we are staying now, with friends in Maryland, they have a very sunny kitchen with a picture window.  The window faces their grassy backyard and the sun is touching the top of the kids’ swing-set.  Why am I telling you this?  Well, because it’s peaceful.  It’s morning and it’s peaceful and it’s my favorite time of day.  I feel like at thing at this time of day.  I feel like myself at this time of day.  It’s easy for me to spend the time to get ready for all of the challenges that the day will present.  When I don’t get this quiet time for myself, I often feel somewhat unprepared for the rest of the day.

But mostly, I know that I write best at this hour.  It’s been a little while – a few weeks, I’d say – since I’ve had the luxury of my morning quiet time.  I’m reveling in it right now.

Ooops, I hear a child.  Quiet time is over.  But that’s okay.  I’m ready.
