I am a morning person whether at home or on the road. I love the quiet solitude of the early morning while I have that first cup of coffee. I love to watch the sun rise as I prepare to start my new day.

But I also love to hear the world around me as it wakes up. Recently, while on a trip to Arkansas, my husband and I enjoyed a glorious morning in the Ouachita Mountains. It was not a fiery, exploding awakening, but a peaceful, quiet one. We sipped coffee, listening as the geese woke up and started calling to one another. We saw them begin their day, as they took flight. We loved watching the fog roll across the water, and the geese as they interacted with it. It was…ephemeral…and I loved it!
