It’s a blogstravaganza. Not only are we Showing and Telling, but we’re also Cross-Pollinating.
Below is a guest post brought to you by the Great Blog Cross Pollination and organized by Geohde.
After you read here, visit Mission Impossible for a list of Cross-Poll bloggers to see if you can figure out who wrote the post below. And you’ll find my post somewhere there, on the blog of my Cross-Poll twin.

The Wee Small Hours of the Morning
This picture is from our brief honeymoon in Carmel. The beach is what I miss most about living in the Middle- lakes just can not measure up to the power and beauty of the ocean. But this picture is the one I “go to” in my head in the mornings. When it’s dark out and the sun has yet begun its peeking out. Especially on days like today where the snow has started falling (yes in early November !!) and I really miss the beach. I am far from a morning person. I hit the snooze repeatedly. I don’t wake up wanting to chatter to people. But I do appreciate the long, slow getting-ready process and find it worthwhile to get up and start my day early. Before I was married, I would take forever (hours from the time the initial alarm went off) to get ready in the morning. Most of it was just spent reading or staring into space. Hearing the silence.
Now, the morning moments are few and far between. But this week, I have been waking up earlier. No doubt due to the time change. I have had fifteen or twenty minutes each morning to contemplate my navel, so to speak. And in my head, I have been going to that beach and picturing the day when I am sitting there with a little digging in the sand. The time is coming.
