A stress dream woke me yesterday morning. I groaned when I saw that it was just five o'clock and still dark outside. Fed up and little grumpy I shuffled through the morning routine of feeding the animals and flicking the switch on the kettle. Normally I'd curl up on the sofa with a blanket and my mug of tea but when I opened the door to let the dogs out I just couldn't resist the beautiful sky that greeted me.
Sitting outside on our porch I was transfixed by the changing light as dawn turned to morning. The bird song that filled the air was so loud I'm surprised it hadn't woken all the neighbors. Sitting there in the dark, in the ever changing light listening to nature's orchestra was a truly magical experience that is hard to put into words.
