early morning sounds
i find early mornings inspirational, tuning into the day’s natural sounds before traffic, media, voices and thought streams take over. last weekend i was by the sea – woken by waves breaking close by – sea, sky, space.
wherever we are though, practising yoga by an open window, or outside with feet in the grass and lungs stinging with cold air; listening to birdsong, wavesong or rainsong – there’s a fresh presence in the early morning – and it’s a good time to practise yoga. the slate wiped clean, reconnecting with what matters. restoring our settings. it’s another chance for another good day.
“…and every day on the balcony of the sea, wings open, fire is born, and everything is blue again like morning.”
