Some mornings I feel I could walk across America. Rising sunlight filtering through tree branches, brisk dog walk, my full breath with lungs wide…
Strength is being present and awake. My lab gets it. This is “whispering” – no effort, our tandem strides are in sync moving through the crisp morning air.
Light surrounds me. The morning scent is clean, soft and cool. Out of the trees into the neighborhood – it awakens too – shop windows sparkle lit by the rising sun, casting shadows across the street.
I am grateful no car separates me from the sight, sound, smells and breath of this morning. The light is my breakfast, it energizes me.
I will transfer this brilliance in all that I touch today.
