Wordless Wednesday: Sunrise

I'm not always up early enough to see the sunrise, especially now that we have been manipulated into believing that what was once 7:30 a.m. is now 6:30 a.m., or maybe this is the real time, or something.

All I know for sure is that I love waking up, going out to get the newspaper, and seeing the sun rising over the mountains. It never fails to thrill me that I have a house, a family, a yard, a view of the mountains.

When I was a girl, I woke every morning to the sound of the lake. Every morning I'd pull the curtains and greet the lake. Lakes are moodier than mountains, less dependable but more knowable.

I've lived in places without morning views. Sometimes you have to create your own definition of view: bare feet on cool concrete with a mug of coffee, a sweet baby's face, your neighbor's maple tree. What's your morning view?

  3. My morning view should I look out the window is that of a beautiful low mountain range above the housetops. Great photo!
    Su-sieee! Mac
    This and That. Here and There. Now, Sometimes Then.

  4. What a gorgeous view to wake up to!

  5. What a gorgeous view to wake up to. I see trees from my window.

  6. Beautiful! I know I like a little reminder now and again that getting up early can be worth it!

  7. That is the beauty of nature! happy day
