My favorite time of the day is always in the morning, any time of the year. Summer mornings, though, are the best. It is cool, the birds are active and noisy, my horse greets me, and occasionally, I get fantastic views like this one. Now that the droning of the locusts has passed, my walks are relaxing and the solitude de-stresses me. And, now that school is out for a few weeks, I can enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the deck. Perfect.
