Waking up extra early for an already early morning can be worth it. I almost fell asleep at the wheel multiple times while driving back from a conference in the mountains, but treated myself to a cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks on the way. It woke me up enough to see this. And not only to see, but to stop, watch, and marvel.
I’m learning that if I leave a sliver of time alone in each day that is untouched by tasks, obligations or scheduled thoughts, my eyes, ears and fingertips can grasp a bit of wonder.
