Celebrate a new day
The new day has just began. I leave home in an early hour, hardly awake. A song begins to sing all by itself in my head; “I give you the morning, I give you the day”… A beautiful song about love that makes my thoughts wake up. Is this a way to celebrate the new day; by driving almost sleeping on a bumpy road? When I could lie down beside someone dear and have some more hours sleep? Anyway, that is not the case right now and I better keep on driving to get this day over and done with.
I still can’t let go of the song and it keeps singing in my head. And the morning is actually a beautiful morning. The sun has just risen and the surrounding nature shows all the pure and fresh beauty that only can be seen in an early spring morning. There is a place just beside the road, it’s a small shore, well hidden from the crowd. In summertime you just get a glimpse of it between all the trees. In springtime it is more easy to spot.
– Well it’s now or never…
I have been driving this road for 15 years and I have never got out of my car to enjoy the fantastic sea view. I park my car just above the small shore and walk down. It feels really relieving to walk in the sand. The early sun salute me good morning and the light is amazing. Some small islands can be spotted through the light haze.
I decide to sit down for a while, there on the shore. The minutes pass, but I don’t care. Work will still be there… Small movement in the water. Sun reflecting from the sky. The scene is filled with hope, calmness and beauty. Now this is a great way to start a new day!
