Something rare and beautiful happened today - I was actually AWAKE at sunrise! (Okay, so at least "something rare" happened.) Anyway, as I struggled to surface to some level of cognitive awareness, I let the dogs out, since it was hard enough simply being upright an HOUR earlier (wow, thanks DST...) without risking doggy accidents.
Opened door, let doggies out and - BOOM! - there is was - the site I'd always HEARD about but seldom seen. SUNRISE!
There was a misty fog rolling over the golf course. If I squinted just the right way (and ignored the Home Depot in the distance on the far left), I could make believe I was in Tuscany. I went to make myself a capuccino and by then the fog had burned off, my "cognative awareness" was much heightened and Tuscany was once again far, FAR away.
That Home Depot? Unfortunately, still there.
But I'll always have my memories.
