Heading for adventure

4.30 in the morning. Sleep escapes me, adventure
awaits. Daughter, granddaughter and I are off to
the farmers' market at first light. Love driving on
country roads as the landscape slowly emerges in
black and white, little by litte colour permeates
and grows untill it bursts in unimaginable glory
with the first rays of the sun. As in music, the gentle
build-up that soothes the soul rising to a fleeting
cescendo....thrilling, energizing and opening your
heart to tackle any challenge the day may offer.
The wonder only lasts a few seconds yet having
seen, felf and breathed it into our very soul it
strengthens resove, eases hurt and if you let it,
turns us into heroes.
