Early Morning and The Road

Whenever I find myself in the car and on a highway around dawn, The Road comes flooding back into my heart and mind. Something about the light and the quality of the air, today it was a sign for a motel and an outback steakhouse that reminded me of a time where such signs made up the bulk of my sight line. Many nights spent being lulled to sleep by the not so distant highway and, almost always waking with the dawn.

The last couple weeks where I’ve been following this sort of wellness journey and waking up at dawn, waking up with the sun which is such a natural way and so pleasant in the summer when is still cool before the pinnacle planet regains it’s full power. There is a quietness during dawn that I find unprecedented, something about the light beckons you, arouses you to the possibility of the day and yet for now it is just. so. quiet.
