I start the car and it rumbles to life. I find my way to the local coffee shop and decaf french vanilla in tow find my way back home. I sip my coffee sitting on my doorstep and watch as the sun wrestles with the night to recapture the day. All is quiet…


The dew on the grass is slowly ebbing as it burns away into the soft soil beneath and the faint early chirps of the morning birds are starting their daily song.


Day has come and night has been forgotten. These days I ache in the morning more than I should, sleep less than I once did and dream less of what may one day be than I used to when I was young.


But the sun has found new birth in this day and is climbing ever higher over the tops of the nearby trees. I close my eyes and it bakes me in its warmth. I feel it wrap its arms around me…hold me tight and whisper in my ear, “It’s time to stand up Ben. Time to face the day.”


Where this day will go I do not know. How it will end is even more a mystery to be certain. But if everyday can start like this…then I welcome tomorrow :).

Have a good day peeps πŸ™‚
