When I worked in the corporate world, morning meant rushing around getting ready and flying out the door to make it to work on time. Usually without breakfast or even a cup of coffee. I would get all of that at the office.
Now, my mornings are slow and relaxing. I have time to feed Allie, drink my coffee or tea, eat breakfast, catch up on some emails and Facebook or just stare into space. As I sit here now, enjoying my coffee, watching Allie groom herself, I can hear the birds chatting away. They are quite active in the mornings...I often wonder what they are saying to each other. Is it their morning coffee clutch? Talking about where the best worms can be found, the cardinals gossiping about those noisy bluejays, the females complaining about having to stay in the nest all night while he was flitting about. I guess I'll never know but its great to have time to think about what they might be saying.
I often think I should take the time in the morning to sit and meditate...I do seem to have the time. Enjoying my coffee, listening to the birds and not rushing around before heading out the door to work...this is my morning meditation.
