Silent and still…a slight fluttering of the curtain…orange yellow sun bursting into the dark of the room…the smell of fresh linens and musty books and the sound of the surf, muted and subdued…I raise my head slightly, confused, off-kilter, before remembering where I am, in this room in this magnificent rented house by the sea…so far from the office and automobiles and subways and leaking furnaces…such peace and tranquility…it is early in the morning, the beginning of the day…the beginning…morning…beautiful morning….

    That beats the living daylights out of my truckstop motel room in Portage, Indiana. Want to trade? 😉

    • Harr! Been there too.

      Well, not Portage, IN…

  2. Coffee’s on…..

    • Bring it!

  3. I love the ‘fluttering curtain.’

    • Aww, thanks so much, Swords.

  4. There’s nothing like waking up that first morning on vacation, long or short, in a space where there are no plans or expectations other than having your morning coffee. Cheers.
