Morning has broken

I woke up a little early this morning and so did my middle daughter.  She was really upset because she had a nightmare and as soon as she saw me, she clung to me for dear life.  I picked her up and took her over to our sofa and held her for a minute, until I glimpsed a breathtaking view out our window.

That view had a pretty staggering effect on both of us.

So much so that she promptly forgot all about her nightmares as she was studying the gradations of colors and the cloud formations.

It was a gorgeous sunrise.  As a sensitive woman prone to bouts of melancholia, I am grateful for these glimpses of Nature’s awesome beauty.  I really treasure the moments I can share that beauty with one or  all of my daughters.

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again

    Madly sweet.

  2. Thanks Papa T, it was.

    I can’t help but think of the nightmares I used to have starting about her age. Sadly, I could never go to my mama for comfort as a child. Still can’t, as a woman.

    But at least I can give what I missed to my girls.

Would you like to share your thoughts? I'd love to hear them.
