Early Morning Reflections



I love my early mornings when the world is still asleep. I sit and sip my coffee as I look at Facebook posts and connect with other early birds around the world. 

This is one of the best parts of the day, my time – a time to connect with other creative souls, a time to create, dream, reflect and wonder. 

This morning I took photos of the full moon once again. It was calling out to me so I went outside on the icy driveway in pjs and slippers and took more photos while standing in the freezing cold. Call me crazy!


Then a bit later, the sunrise was a blazing show of orange and reds so of course I trekked outside once again to take more photos. Good thing I’m always overheating from menopause and that the cold didn’t bother me much. Felt kind of good actually!


Even if I take a photo of the same subject such as the full moon or Mr. C, no two photos are ever the same, just like no two moments are ever the same. 

Good to remember when I fall into that ho hum rut, feeling like I’ve seen it all a thousand times and it’s all become so boring and routine.  

Every day is different, every moment is different, and I’m different.

  1. Amazing how you can get such breathtaking pictures of the moon and then of the sun within a few hours. Mornings are the most peaceful times of the day but they're also the busiest for me.

  3. It does look beautiful! You know, today, as I was travelling in the bus, I too saw a.full moon, just rising from behind the mountains. There was a golden glow around it and the entire scenery was breathtaking! Just saw your moon and remembered my moon-y moment!:-)

    1. Thanks, Mina. I opt for the new adventure and try to get myself out of the rut I sometimes find myself in. Taking photos sure helps with that.

    1. Thanks, Shailaja. Appreciate the encouragement and support. That zest for life isn't always there. Sometimes I have dark days but I try and pull myself out of them. I try to stay positive as it sure beats being down and defeated. Some days are better than others!
