By nature I am an early riser and thus have ample me time to enjoy.  The silence of the dark hour of the fading night is occasionally broken by the call of a night bird or two giving rise to an extra appreciation of the beauty of nature.

Then slowly the darkness of the night is replaced by a nautical dusk that rapidly changes to dusk and then daybreak while the birds announce the departure of the dark and herald in the new day.

However, some mornings, like today, can be grey and wet.  Yes, raining again as the new week kicks off.  Enjoy the day.
