I awoke early and full of curiosity. I wanted to experience morning on our new porch. We moved into this stone dwelling 4 days ago and I’m still learning how it breathes.
Summer in the South is layered in moods and demands. She sits in your lap and hugs the air from your lungs like a child that’s been pampered far too long. She’s lush and fragrant and the birds never tire of singing praises. Bees the size of bullfrogs hover above the Morning Glory vines mumbling.
Boxes still litter our bedrooms waiting to be unpacked but for now I sit and swing listening and learning a new rhythm. Change at any age can be discordant…initially, but lean in to your new day, the song may not be familiar, but the words could change your life.
