What do you notice about the world when you get up in the morning?

I am sitting here listening to the birds chirp and realize we take so much for granted. What a sound this is. I love morning and all it's freshness. I love to take in everthing I can that surrounds me. As I drive my daughter to the bus, I am always watching and looking. Do you feel the same?

I live in the middle of a big city, a capital city actually. So there is no birds chirps in the morning, no way. I wake up, take a quick shower and get ready to go to work. First thing I notice outside my house is the traffic, since I live very close to a main road. Sometimes it's crowded, sometimes it's empty, depends on what day it is.

Im staying near the secondary school so when I get up I heard the students step walked, laughed, talked and I heard an announcemt from the school. I also heard the cars, bus or van that sent the students to school. Its bit annoying to hear all that sound but what to do. At least that sound remind me that time is running and I need to wake up.

Since I have to get up early to go to work I notice the following about the world when I get up: The alarm clock is too loud My little dog is lazy Someone has a rooster (Recently)Smoke stinks All kidding aside, I love Florida in the morning. The strange looking birds are pecking around in my yard, there is dew on the grass, it's not freezing cold. The air used to be so fresh.

I like to hear the birds too. I have collared doves outside my bedroom window and they make a soft cooing sound which is a nice gentle way to start the day. First thing I do is look out at the sky. Every morning it is different. Sometimes there is still some pink in the clouds from the sunrise and on other days it is clear blue or cloudy grey, but there is always a special quality to early morning light. Even on the coldest days I like to open the window and breathe in some of the freshness of a new day.

I love mornings! It is quiet, clean, fresh. It is just wonderful! I wake up, coffee is ready, I pour a cup, let the dogs out, then sit quietly for as long as possible. About 20 minutes. It's heaven! Then the rest of the house wakes up.
