I woke up this morning at 4:00. J had been snuggled up to me the entire night and started fretting about. His full bladder broke his slumber and when he is up....he is up!
It was black outside. I fixed a cup of coffee and pleaded with my brain to keep me alert and eyes open. I shuffled about, fixed snacks, set up a morning movie cartoon and watched the sky lighten and quietly usher in the sun.
Our home faces west. We can see our little town, the river and beyond to the ocean. As the sun rises, the western sky turns a charcoal grey and the buildings, trees and river blush pink and orange. It is vivid.
This morning clouds clung to the coastline and a rainbow drew the line between light and dark. The huge arc spanned from the beach over the river, town and beyond. The sun opened her wide eyes and the rainbow slipped away.
