“Morning is when the wick is lit. A flame ignited, the day delighted with heat and light, we start the fight for something more than before.” – Jeb Dickerson
Morning Walk with Pepper
Most of my working days for a newspaper began before the sun came up. Often I was the first one to make an appearance in the newsroom. And if not, I still usually found things dark and quiet.
It didn’t help my popularity that I would turn on all the lights and cheerfully tell whoever had come in early, most likely to finish a story before deadline, a cheery good morning. Not everyone enjoys getting up before the sun.
But I do, and this morning was one of those magical ones, the kind that stirs my soul and makes it quiver with delight.
Pepper and I were on the short desert trail near our apartment in time to watch the final vestiges of last’s night full moon disappear as the sun crept up over a ridge, shooting rainbows of color as it topped the landscape.
Life is good.
