I'm not a big fan of waking up early, but I have to. Lately, I've been getting up and taking the dog out for a walk, first thing. This morning, as we were walking, I was thinking about how enjoyable it is to kind of have the world to yourself in the early morning. There aren't many people out and about at 6:30 on a cool, late summer morning. As we walk around the neighborhood, we often see just a single light on in a house. The quietness is just wonderful. It makes me happy to start the day, as if at that time, the world is mine and mine alone. Well - Boomer's too. I was looking down at him this morning as we walked, his little ears bouncing up and down. We go at a good pace, but he still is able to check out the world - looking for squirrels and other evil beings. It's a nice way to start the day.
