I didn't want to be awake.
We were off by ourselves in a hotel room with a free Saturday morning stretching before us.
My plan had been...sleep. Then laziness and a little more sleep.

But I woke up early.
And there was sky, and sun, and light.
I just had to watch, to be a part of the dawning of this day.
It seemed more restful to soak in the the moment, to take in the light....then to sleep.
Quiet meditation came easily, and was more restorative than laziness could have ever been.

There is a peace that comes when I let the day carry me,
instead of trying to carry the day.
And I was grateful for that peace.
