Have you noticed how beautiful a sunrise is?
It’s a simple thing. Not too bold and in your face, but still just enough to not be invisible.
Depending on the week, my alarm goes off at 5:30am, and I’m on the road to work by 6:10am. Some days it’s crazy cold and I “rush” to the car, getting it and myself warm. Now, it’s a bit balmy and it’s more like a stroll. Stoplights and traffic may accelerate or stall the commute.
But lately, I’ve been noticing the sky. One of the rare perks of Daylight Savings Time is the earlier sunrise. Gets the day going earlier and longer, which we can all be happy about.
When I walk out of the house, the sky is mirroring itself from twelve hours earlier, a midnight blue, with a few stars. But in a matter of minutes, lighter blues, with pinks, lavenders, and some oranges peek through. It amazes me how quickly the sky changes from one spectrum to the other.
The picture above was too gorgeous to not capture. No filters this time around. This is the sky in its’ pure form at 7am. So perfect in my mind.
I’m thankful that I’m able take a beat, a few moments to look and appreciate. The calm before the storm, if you will.
And hooray for spring! My favorite season.
