Watching Dawn

Early morning. Lots of tweets and posts and things to catch up on after a busy Halloween weekend. But today I sat, drank my coffee, and watched the overcast sky brighten. Not a beautiful storybook sunrise. Not an overpowering awareness of the grandeur of the planet. Just the steady glow of the morning opening it’s eyes and looking down with infinite and eternal calm. And for just a few minutes, I felt calm, too.
