Hello spring, we’ve missed you.

It’s about 20 min to 7 this morning, and I’m sitting at my laptop trying to to finish up a project that I’ve been working on. I tried doing yoga this morning, but all I want to do is listen to the birds sing and smell the spring air. It’s absolutely beautiful outside although it’s still dark. The air is crisp, there’s a chorus of bird calls mixed with light sounds of a city awakening—delivery trucks making their rounds, occassional chatter of early risers, red eye flights coming in at DCA. The washington area is waking up, and I woke up just a few moments before to catch it’s awakening. The sun has not poked his head out yet, but its energy already fills the eastern sky spilling orange hues onto the capitol and washington monument and mixing with the dark blue sky creating an delicate wash of impressionistic colors. Slowly the sky turns light, slowly the sounds increase in volume and complexity, slowly things come into consciousness. It’s truly amazing.
