I love these moments, the precious hours when everything is hushed and what you hear are the silent sounds of a world just waking up from slumber. The nights are long and cold, that kind where you just savour the quiet moments before you start the day and greet the sun’s welcome warmth, the moments of thanksgiving for another lovely morning.
It reminds me of those times that I enjoyed feeling the cold breeze, the lovely morning walks where your feet just know where to go, thinking about life and all it brings, thinking about Caleruega, one of my favorite places. A nostalgic trip down memory lane. Sometimes, one’s memory of a place tides you over the long days of being alone in your thoughts and it brings back the smiles. And you are lucky and blessed that there are such places where peace and quiet reign. We need sometimes to embrace our solitude and be attuned with what nature brings. We need sometimes to think of graceful thoughts and imagine being transported back to places that brought so much happiness in our lives. Moments like this – something to treasure, something to cherish.
Have you ever felt teary-eyed but joyful welcoming an early morning? The Divine is shining through all the time.
