Pre Dawn Light
I never have been very good at getting up early in the morning. My Mom always used to have to force me out of bed to go to school and I certainly have no desire to get up in the morning in the city, especially as the vast majority of time it is to go to work - not a great incentive! But in the desert it is different, I am often up and out before the sun has risen.
There is a wonderful gentleness to the early hours before the heat of the desert begins to take hold. The softness of air is matched by the softness of colours.
I also love the opportunity to walk around our land and read the signs of who and what has passed our way during the night, it is rather like reading a nature journal written on the land.
A wonderful peaceful way to start the day and get in a positive frame of mind to face whatever the day may bring.
