fleeting moments

Early Morning Light

Thank you to Jo, a regular contributor to the Mortal Muse flickr groups, for taking my spot this round. I hope you show her some muse love. I’ll be back next time to muse on shapes.

Musing on relaxation . . .  I’m not really sure I know what relaxation is. Generally speaking I’m in a constant state of motion, if not physically, well then mentally. But there are times when I can feel still, fleetingly, and I can feel totally relaxed and just enjoy being and not doing.

Like those last moments of slumber when I can wake up and listen to the resident blackbird with the early morning sunlight slipping through a chink in the curtains and falling across the bedclothes, spreading its warmth. And I know that I still have time left to myself before its time to get up and start the day. And my mind can drift off for a while, with the blackbird song, to daydreams of countryside and birdsong and butterflies and flowers… and my camera …and then the alarm goes off…
 
I love the mood of relax from Deanna as she is snapped from behind catching a few fleeting moments of relaxation of her own.

I've never been the jump-up-and-out of bed type person. I love those few moments of lying awake anticipating the day, comfortable in my bed. And what beautiful light you've captured in your photo. thanks for musing with us Jo.
