Early

"Wake up," he said. "You've got to see this." So I rolled out of bed and over to the window, where we sat and looked, and looked, wondering for a moment if we were seeing islands in a calm sea, or the mountains from the night before, peeking up through the low clouds that had rolled in overnight.

And we watched the sun come up. Quickly. By mid-morning, the valley, uncovered. "To think," I said, "this happens every morning. If we'd only take the time to see."

So lovely - now that the time has changed, I have tried to get out to run at 6. It's so great to have been out and to see the sun and the lovely light of early morning. It helps that we've had so many warm days in VA. You must be vacationing?
