Pin It Now!
My early morning routine is completed before my husband bids me a good day. He slips into his car and drives away. I take my cup of coffee and open the door to the veranda where the cooler morning air greets me with an unexpected freshness. The air mass has changed and although warm it is less humid then the night preceding it. I nestle into my overstuffed wicker chair and grab a Coastal Living Magazine to be whisked off to a seashore adventure. My mind drifts with the pictures, and the smell of summer is real. It whispers for me. Then I am brought back in the moment of hearing and smelling and seeing all that is around me. A symphony has exploded and I realize it is in surround sound. Everywhere from every perspective my senses are awake. Robins, grackles ,sparrows, wrens, blue jays, cardinals all singing in harmony...broken with the tingle of katydid, and the soft whir of bumble bees, and the splashing of feathered wings in the bird bath. It is a perfect summer morning right here. I look at the windows of my neighbors homes still shut and clothed in heavy shades. Unaware of the magic happening right outside. I am so glad I didn't miss it! I spy a rainbow in my sprinkler mist, and the light breeze lifts my bangs so the sense of touch can be awakened too! It is all good. The chores of the day can wait for one more minute as I relish one more perfect summer morning in my life. The textures and nuances will be added to my other summer memories to be dreamed off on a day long away!
