It is possible that the quietness that surrounds us during an early morning walk can enable us to experience a feeling of inner contentment.
Whether it be the mountains, the sea or just a bush track, there is a peace that pervades as the sun heralds the start of a new day and the birds welcome it with their own individual calls.
There is so much beauty to be seen in the early morning. The mist rising from the mountain valleys as the sun penetrates and melts it to reveal the awakening of the bush.
The sun rising from the sea allows footprints to be clearly visible in the sand that has been washed clean by the overnight tidal movements. The small puffy clouds lining the horizon change hues from purple through pink to gold and the fishing boat heading out to sea is silhouetted by the strength of the sun’s brightness.
Even on dull or rainy days there is still beauty to be seen in the solitary tree on the hill starkly outlined against the stormy sky or the raindrops sitting on a rose petal.
Morning brings new life to our day. Experiencing the environment around us as it slowly wakes is a nice way to ease ourselves into the busy day ahead.
I’m Peter Mack and that’s life.
