Good Morning

6efc090d

I start my day like this: with tea & poetry. I have to. They work together to pull me out of the tired doldrums comprised of early morning wake-ups and half-dreams. They rock me into the early bright light of wild sunrise wind, happy-playful partner, and son quietly eating applesauce at the table. These sips of tea and words of poetry team up to remind me it is time to begin again, welcome this new day, breathe and go forward with heart and eyes wide open.
