It is a serious thing – just to be alive – on this fresh morning – in this broken world.” —Mary Oliver

 I've mentioned before when my husband is away I like to sleep with the curtains open. I love the city sparkling in the dark when I go to bed and the orange glow of the sky being the first thing I see when I open my eyes.

It is a luxurious way to start the day!

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” —Marcus Aurelius

It is the simpliest of pleasures and the quickest way to boost your spirits. 

“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world.” –E. B. White


  1. Beautiful photos and lovely quotes.

  2. Very beautiful. I definitely would sleep with the curtains open too.

  3. Lots of good ideas for starting the morning, accompanied by great pictures and music. I can only agree with the words of Marcus Aurelius, this insight is so wonderful, perhaps I will use it next month in the 'Galeria Himmelsblick'?

  4. Beautiful photos to go with beautiful quote from Mary Oliver. Michelle

  5. That is simple pleasure indeed. Beautiful shots.
