Morning Magic

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

I grumble at times about the growing dark in the morning as I fumble my way in the dark to my treadmill. I don't like to turn on the lights, but have everything situated so that I can just slip on my sneakers, hop on and get going.

But this morning I was in awe witnessing the dark outside gradually lightening as the sun rose, with three of our cats lined up in their respective windows taking in this daily magic.

It was a reminder of the daily miracle of darkness turning to light which, if we're vigilant, we can see and appreciate in our lives over and over again.

    mmmm, thanks for posting this. i blew off water aerobics this morning for a number of irrational reasons. i hadn't been able to go b/c of work the last 2 weeks and had scheduled to start back today. i'm mentally allergic, i swear, and i'd rather do most anything except go. I'm fine when i'm there and after, but my resistance is strong and strongest when I haven't gone awhile. but i think i need to make going 1st thing less complex. i'd been cooking up breakfast. maybe i need to do grab & go (banana & cheese sticks or something)... will have to think on it... the winter is harder. up when dark, home when dark. blech. i've always let it derail me, but this year, i need to stay focused on those am workouts.... or i'll talk myself out of them at night ;) i had already talked myself out of Fri this week, assuring myself i would go this coming mon. :::snort::: i feel like i'm lying to myself. ok. if you can do it, so can i. Fri it is! My other days aren't quite so early. we'll see how tomorrow goes ;) Perhaps you'll have a beautiful sunrise tomorrow! Cheers :)

    Absolutely know what you mean!! I live by a lake and when I jump on the elliptical early in the morning it is amazing to watch the sun come up over the water. I am not really a morning person and I soooo relate to the not wanting to turn on the lights! lol But don't you feel pumped afterwards??? Appreciate the simple pleasures in life everyday!
