While looking through my pictures trying to decide the topic for my second post, it struck me that the subject of trees was more perfectly fitting than I had imagined. This blog has so many possibilities and like a tree, can branch out as far and wide as I dare to go. It's really just a matter of choosing the direction to go next, but as easy as that sounds, that's the very thing that stumped me; until I came upon this picture.
Does it speak to you? If so, what does it say? How does it make you feel?
I'm not a morning person by any stretch of the word but there's something special about the quiet stillness of dawn; something I witness far too little of. This particular morning though, it was late September and we were driving through Alabama for the first time, which is the only reason I was even awake. Let me tell ya, it was worth it. Every time I see this picture I go back to that day and it reminds me there's so much more going on then what we at first observe. The dawn is full of life, there's a peaceful excitement in the air, transition as the sun warms up the day and creates this beautiful mist I call the in-between. It reminds me to just breathe and appreciate each moment or thought for what it is. I won't always be were I want to be but I can choose to enjoy getting there.
