Mornings

Iris, 2013

Someone recently wrote of her practice of reading something beautiful each morning. She liked to begin her day by remembering how beautiful writing can be.

I wish I could recall who wrote this. I think of it often. If you are reading, thank you.

Today it is Brooke's piece, The Wren, that reminds me of such beauty.

    certainly better than watching a bit of the news and feeling a bit, well, you know how the news can make one feel.

    also, iris! now THAT is a lovely way to start the day.

  4. I'm the opposite, I like a bit of good writing before bed. But I'm a morning person and like to dive into what needs to be done. All about production in the mornings!

  12. I have gotten out of the habit of reading poetry in the morning. You've motivated me to return to it once more. Thank you, dear friend.

  13. Gotta echo Jane on this one. Wren's a beautiful pice of writing, which is what I find here, consistently.

  14. I'll think of Brooke's wren as I keep my eyes open for our own little family. And starting the day with something beautiful rather than my usual bout of radio news sounds far preferable. Love the irises.

    1. Yes! You are correct, Michele. Thanks you!
