In the Early Morning .........






I love to sit outside early in the morning when the city is just waking up....

This morning the fog was thick when I first went out -- but as the sun rose it started to break through and cast sun droplets on the houses

The young couple across the street were up early -- the joy of having a brand new baby .... the young mom came to sit outside on the stairs - door left open to listen for the baby -- and have an early morning cigarette......

Slowly the noises increased -- cars starting -- the occasional dog barking -- the squirrels running along the wires chattering..

Soon children's voices joined the chorus of early morning noises -- children heading out to the bus stops... one lil guy loves to come up our stairs to say 'good morning' to me.... 

I watched, sipping my coffee, as Sir Steve and the little one walked to the corner to wait for her bus... the fog slipping around them ... almost hiding them... then they would reappear -- the lil one bouncing along beside her daddy... 

The bus came -- the lil ones disappeared -- the mommies and daddies separated and went their different ways... the crows started cawing.. the dogs started barking -- the fog was gone and the sun was shining.......... 

Just another morning in the little town I call home.......
