up with the sun...

It was 47 degrees here this morning when I went walking with Melanie. I'm hoping that means the autumn is here, but the rest of the people are in my life are skeptical. I can't say I blame them. The weather bounces around so much here,  like my moods and mental condition--sometimes unbearably warm, others cold and unyielding. Bi-polar weather.

Isn't sunrise here beautiful? I love this time of the morning, when everyone else is sleeping and the day is still. It feel like it does me good to get out and get some fresh air, and I read that exercise can do as much good for mental stability as taking anti-depressants. I'm thinking there's some wisdom in that, particularly since exercise is actually making me feel better--that and the beautiful morning views. And it's helping me write. And, best of all, there's no crazy side effects. Can't beat that.


  1. It makes you wonder why exercising is so damn hard to commit to, when we feel so good after doing it. I get such a rush after working out, yet I haven't been able to coax myself into exercising for two or three weeks.

    Gorgeous photo!

  2. I have a lot of trouble getting up to exercise sometimes, but once I've done it, I generally feel better. Ironic.

    And thanks about the pic. I thought it was pretty!
