Dawn is the most precious time to spend outdoors, especially now that we have passed the spring equiniox
It is summertime, the week of the spring equinox: time to think and talk about light. About the joy of morning flowers and gardening, about escaping the demands of the day.
I was a country kid. We got up early, though it was harder for my brother than me. I would sneak out of the house before 7am, hunt for field mushrooms and magic for breakfast. I would watch the dog fox heading home, hear the skylarks, hope to see the kingfisher’s iridescent dash.
