It surrounds me.
The time change this past weekend has left me a bit discombobulated and unsettled.
One of my absolute favorite things (and routines) when I am home is to wake up, get my cup of coffee, give the cats their treats and amble back to the coziness of my bed to watch the sunrise fully explode over the lake. The view from our bedroom windows is usually pretty stunning even if the windows do need washed.
But the time change changes all of that.
At least for a while.
It is pitch black as I write this and even though I have my coffee on the nightstand and two purring cats – one on each side- I feel that something is not quite right.
I can see glimpses of light from the occasional car that crosses the small bridge over the lake, a light goes on in a window across the lake but the darkness prevails.
It is unsettling when it is not what I am used to.
But isn’t that just like life?
The unexpected and the out of the normal sometimes unsettle me.
Routines are disrupted and I find myself trying to scramble to catch up and get things right again.
There it comes.
The light of day.
Sunrise is on the horizon.
Soon the majestic sun will be peeping out and shining in all of its glory.
A new normal. A new routine. A new day has begun.
All is well.
Out of the darkness comes light.
