Mornings can be hard to get up for, particularly in the cold and dark of winter.
Yet, some things make it worth waking early for.
Waking, then moving, can be a great way to start the day.
It can get the body working and warmed up before the mind takes over, or even put the mind in a decent space.
In Kangaeroo’s case, it’s handy. The mind is rarely friendly.
Winter 2021-2 has not been particularly constructive.
Moved to a home last year, renovations kept it dark….for three months.
Work is not going well. Laid off three times in 2021. Not feasible to retire.
Bike breakdowns, and no replacement parts owing to supply problems.
Camera stops working and repairs cost as much as a new one.
Working extra jobs to try to recover lost income.
Can’t ride, can’t shoot, can’t avoid work. Darkness.
But the glorious mornings are worth waking for.
The gorgeous light as it breaks through the dark. The solitude. The serenity.
Make it all worthwhile.
