Beginning the Day

It's a lovely morning ... warm enough that I didn't have to hurriedly get out of bed and rekindle a fire. Instead, I let out and fed the goose and chicken, hung the bird feeder, carried in firewood, and leisurely started a fire to warm up the house. And then, then, I joined the birds outside for a morning T'ai Chi Chih practice.

My home in the woods was all a-twitter. Woodpeckers argued in the woods, the cat stalked birds near the feeder, a phoebe endlessly called its plaintive refrain (phee-bee), birds sang from every direction, and me? I calmly, quietly, peacefully floated through my moving meditation. It was glorious.

And now my day is truly begun....
