Sunrise....Moon Set

Lucie and I got into the habit of walking early this summer to avoid the heat. In truth, I prefer early, even before a cup of coffee. So, we began our day by walking at 6 AM; now, though, it's not quite light enough to be out until after 6:30 AM. Besides avoiding the heat of day, there are other benefits to walking early. The village is pretty much still asleep. I don't see many people, so I feel okay about being a bit raggedy and without makeup. Mostly, I run into the garbage collection guys. What a happy lot they are so early in the morning! Always laughing amongst themselves, always a big smiley 'bonjour!' for Lucie and me.

Here's another good reason to walk early...sunrise.

My friends still think it's crazy to be up walking so early....

What do you think?

I took these photos on our walk this morning. As we made our circuit around the village, I was reminded of the Navajo prayer, 'In Beauty May I Walk'.  It was definitely a beauty walk morning!
