It is early morning. I am sitting on my deck, looking east out over the town of Loveland where I live.
Not a cloud in the sky, which is a lovely, calming shade of blue. You know this shade of blue, hard to describe, simply like no other.
Peaceful is what I feel, as I sit here enjoying my first cup of coffee.
There is a cool breeze. Yes, cool. I can’t believe it myself since yesterdays temperatures reached the high nineties. Where did it come from, I need not ask, I am just delighted it came to pay a visit.
Once in a small shady spot, how my space is mixed with beams of sunlight as the sun rises higher in the sky. It is now topping the highest branch on my beautiful Ponderosa Pine. As the breeze continues to blow, lovingly caressing her branches, I see shadows dancing across my lap.
I hear the faint, mournful calls of the Ringed Turtle- Doves as they fly in and around my yard, whispering to each other and perhaps to me. Their call reassuring my peaceful feeling.
I know the day will get warmer, maybe even hot, but right now, in this moment, I treasure these peaceful moments of my morning.
The girls are laying at my feet. It seems they also are enjoying this cool, calming morning. I think I see doggie smiles on their faces. Are they experiencing my pleasure? More likely their own happy doggie thoughts.
Is it now time for a walk…..
