  • All is quiet.

    I sip on my morning coffee and gaze out the sliding glass doors to the pool and backyard. The air is still at this moment. Not even a ripple in the pool. The water is a mirror reflecting the serenity of the morning sky. There is a calmness in the air echoed by the silence of the birds.

    The earth is recalibrating itself for a new day.
