I like hearing the birds as soon as the sun rises.
My Uncle used to always come to my parents house for breakfast when I was younger and hed tell me I wasn't his neice.
Thats if I slept in. He always said, Indians rise with the sun. Eventually I got so sick of hearing it, I'd make sure I was up ahead of time.
Bird watching as well is awesome.
Infact I can't wait til it warms up even more in Minnesota here.
I think these times are progress, might not be as easy for us to see it now,
and I know what you mean by numbing effects of work and what not, definitely takes
time from more meaningful things like family, but we all do what we have to right.
And I'm going to have to catch nightwolf, he totally dipped out on his topic, I'll have to look for more information regarding the star beings to add to the thread next.
