... or any other time of day for that matter, but there is something special about the mornings as all of life is preparing to live another day on this remarkable little planet we call home ... and we get to choose what kind of day we will have and how we react to what others say and do. Mornings have been special since I was a little kid and joined my dad, brothers and friends in the sloughs and river bottoms before dawn, drinking coffee and sharing stories as we awaited the sun and legal hours to begin the hunt ... or on the water or stream fishing ... or sleeping in after a late night out ... there was always the friendly greeting, "Good morning sunshine, how goes the world with you?"

Have a beautiful day ... leaving for the lake in four hours and time for some rest.
I yield myself to the thousand enchantments of sky
and field and wood, and play again like a child on the
soft green of the earth. And as the God of the universe
has made thee to bloom in tenderness, so also may my
heart be softened, and the gardens of my life
be made to bloom again.
