New Day Dawning

Standard

       Today, I leave my home earlier than usual.  Surprisingly, the world is shrouded in a cloak of translucent fog.  A halo of silvery light surrounds the street lamps, giving an ethereal look to the quiet street.  Stillness tiptoes around our sleepy little town as if encouraging Day to linger in its bed a little longer than usual.   The hazy backdrop invites me to reflect on the beauty of the predawn morning.  How peaceful the world seems before the hustle and bustle of everyday life!  How it calls early-risers to think deep thoughts and ponder possibilities!  I like this peaceful time of day.  I marvel at the beauty all around me.  I think my deep thoughts and ponder possibilities for the fresh, awakening day.

About bjdonaldson

I think of myself as a Renaissance woman with a variety of passions. If you visited me, you might find me hanging out with my husband and children. Our Golden Retriever would be lovingly near. I am a Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist at an elementary school where I provide professional development and coaching to teachers. Formerly, I was a Reading Recovery teacher, an interventionist, and a middle and elementary classroom teacher. Getting up in the morning is not hard; I still love making a difference in the lives of children and teachers.

  1. It is so nice to start my day with your post even though it is now hours past when you wrote this. You’ve described a time I rarely get to experience because I am a night owl. Lovely post

  2. Being awake in the early mornings over the past few days, I have been attuned to sounds around the house and outside the house that I was never aware of before. Love the images your words paint.
