Today, I will be…

morninglight

After a pretty rainy, extremely humid weekend,

it was a treat to wake up to dry air, cooler temps and this glorious morning light from the sun.

The first thing I noticed though, was that the sun is definitely heading into its end of summer, early fall position.

How can that be ?

August just began, right ?

Everyone I talk to remarks on how fast time is flying.

I feel it too, especially when I stop focusing on the moment in front of me, and look ahead to the future.

On this beautiful Monday morning in August,

I am going to try my best to be right here where I am,

and relish this one precious life, each and every moment of it.

Today, I will be happy =) - quotes Photo

Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones !

that is amazing artwork on the side of that building!

And yes, you begin to feel the change as summer comes to an end...it's in the air, the sunlight, those leaves turning freakishly early...

So I am with you -- soak up THE day -- THIS one...right there alongside you my beautiful friend! ♥

I am one who does not like the heat so the beginnings of fall are a blessing to me. I agree about time, it does seem like August just began and now its half over.
Relishing each precious moment is the gift we so need to cultivate. Wishing you a lovely day.
