21.6.10 ~ light


Paul and I found ourselves awake at 4 this morning. It was already getting light. When I heard the first bird singing, I said, “Oh no.”

“What?” asked Paul.

“Birds singing.” I whispered back.

“Bastards.”

Despite another sleepless night, and waking up woozy, I’m feeling hopeful. It’s the summer solstice and one of the first words I read today were these: The light in me greets the light in you. Darkness cannot overcome it. ~ The light in me greets the light in you. Darkness cannot overcome it. ~ It’s going to be my mantra today. Happy Solstice everyone. Namaste.

We are woken by birds most days at the moment & it is wonderful. They signal that the day is on its way!

I don't have anything against birds or the day being on its way, I just don't like knowing about it at 4am.

This really made me smile. Not every morning can be lyrical and wonderful. Thank god it's not cockerels, like they have in South-East Asia.
