A purple dawn
Today's dawn was spectacular, one to savor and remember. I was happy to be alive for it. It painted the whole world purple, and even the hoar frost on the pine trees was tinted purple when I gazed to the west.
To the east, the sunrise was gorgeous, hidden behind a "Christmas Tree" lit up in a natural light show.
It was about 12°F when K and I rolled out the door.... but it's amazing how that temperature has started feeling warm to me if the wind is quiet. We relaxed near our favorite sunrise viewpoint, and K stood next to a frost-covered small pine tree.
After we departed, I managed to pedal all the way up to Hug Hill, for only the second time in the weeks since we were bombarded with snow. K reclaimed her place as the Queen of Hug Hill.
I was so happy to be alive and out in nature with my K this morning. I hope that you all are finding peaceful moments in this busy season.
