Cooler mornings are beginning to return.
So many mornings are regimented. There are things that must get done.
But today will be different.
With my cup of coffee I head to the porch.
The rocking chair allows me to see both the hummingbirds who will visit the feeder and the squirrels who will play along the base of the trees.
I bring a book. Annie Dillard is my choice today. I drink her words along with my coffee.
My cat joins me, perched on the dry sink to have the same view as mine – hummingbirds and squirrels.
I read as much as I watch.
I drink my coffee.
I sit still and am content.
This is how mornings should be.
This is how to begin the day.
I love Saturday mornings.
