“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” – Marcus Aurelius
I should probably catch more of these. Although I have been recently (over the past couple of years) refining my morning routine, its been for the most part confined to my indoor space. Being a couple of short blocks away however, I really have no excuse. I mean I can almost fall out of bed and be there to capture first light every day if I chose to! How lucky am I now that I think of it…
So on this brisk morning, I was composing a few different ways before I decided to take a few snaps in portrait mode and later blend into a panorama. I love the symmetry in reflection. The water, when its calm, creates an amazing mirror for a morning sky like this. Yeah, as I look at this again, I think I need to get the morning walk back on the New Years list!
So if you could start out every day, regardless of career or family obligations, what would that be? In fact, if you could do ANYTHING with your day from sunrise to sunset regardless of obligations, what would that be? I love asking people that question. It scares most people, but I still like to ask.
So on a night like tonight, on a power ball 900 million night, what would YOU do….if money were no object? Its at least worth a few minutes of thought. Hopefully, the answer is not too different than the life you are trying to live right now….
Food for thought…..and good luck 🙂
