The sun gets up early this time of year, peaking over our mountains just after 6 a.m. So if you want to catch the prettiest light, you best be standing on the deck, coffee in hand, 5:40, 5:45 at the latest. It’s well worth the early rise for me; the show is magnificent most days, and very shortly thereafter I can be settled into the studio, happily writing the morning away.
It is my favorite time of day.
As it is for this sweet friend,
who meets me there rain or shine, nearly every morning
each time heralding the glory of the new day
Joyful, unbridled song!
