There is nothing more beautiful than dawn. I've loved morning ever since I was a little kid. In my family everyone wakes up early. My Grandparents were raised in the South in farming communities so they were always up at dawn and I have never known my Mother to sleep in past 7 am. I may not be quite as early of a bird as they are but I love waking up early and having the world to myself, or at least it feels that way. When I was still in High School I would get up early, make breakfast, and sit on the porch swing before going to school. Then I felt like the day was mine and it wasn't just lost on everything else. These days my life is so busy that I forget to do this and should more often.
Even in a busy city like Los Angeles, if you wake up early enough the only thing you'll hear is birds. Everything has stopped and is still asleep.
I think morning is where my love for light began. Morning light & evening light are so magical.
