In the Dark of the Morning a Question is Asked

I often walk my dog in the pre-dawn hours. It's my way of transitioning from sleep into the day ahead, the quiet and dark of our morning walks allows me to sort through the leftover thoughts and dreams from the night before and think about the day in front of me.

Wee are usually alone as we walk, birds awakening, some of our neighbors rising as a window shines light here and there. The morning planets - Venus, Jupiter, Mars - shine above us and the ever changing moon marks our progress in the month.

This morning, as I walked, I contemplated the many changes and decisions I'm facing. I prayed for a sign to let me know which way to go or if I'm on the right track.

Nearing the end of our walk, as I approached home, I heard someone whistling behind us. I turned to look, because I had not heard or seen anyone else on the streets.

A man on a bike, in an Australian accent, shouted out as he passed by "It's five fucking am in the fucking morning. What have you started?"

Signs and messages are always welcome. Thankful for today's wake up message.
