Monday morning, and its beautiful

A real joy to be up and running through the countryside white with frost, under clear skies at dawn this glorious morning.

A waning full moon to the west, the rising sun to the east, no noise.

Planets and stars in the skies, birds in the air, rabbits, deer, pheasant on the ground.

Amidst the noise, the hassle, the bad news, beauty is often to be found simply by lifting our eyes and looking.
