Golden beams of warm sunshine cut through the night's frigid air this morning and woke me a good hour before the alarm was due. I always sleep with the curtains of the east facing window pulled back because there are few better ways to start the day than with the sun warming my face and brightening my eyes. It makes me feel there's something extra to get up for.
Hektor and Achilles, my two cats, clearly felt the same as they were keen to get breakfast early and start a busy day of lounging in the sun bird watching. I fed them tuna and got myself ready for work. My walk in only takes 15 minutes at most and usually I'm just waking up by the time I get to the security locked doors of my building. Today I enjoyed every minute of that walk. I savoured the crisp, fresh air and smiled as it combined with the bright sunshine to bring back memories of similar beautiful mornings in the past.
They were memories of days that started just the same, but I knew those mornings that there was something special in the air, something just felt right and good about them. If nothing else unique happens today, it will have been one of those mornings. Just because I woke up today, smiled and appreciated it and the memories I have of days before just like it.
Spring is one of my favourite times of year and if this year it's coming early then so much the better.
