There is an elfin quality to those moments just before dawn. A subtle shifting of light and air as if all the magical beings of the night are rustling back to their hiding places. This morning I watched the sun rise and felt surrounded by my thoughts and an unshakable conviction that today was a new day without any mistakes in it. (Which I have to admit is a favorite quote from Anne of Green Gables). And don't we all long for a new day, a clean slate, a fresh beginning? The flowers know and open themselves daily to the sweetness of the sunrise. The birds greet the day with abandon and the rooster down the way vocally stakes out his territory every morning. How will you greet your day? I hope it offers you everything your dreams hinted at minutes before the light changed.
