The Valley Before the Climb


There is something truly beautiful and truly human about waking up in the morning.

I love the three-to-five-second moment of confusion where no matter how fast you blink, you simply do not know what is real and what is not. It is like unmarked territory, that unique transition between sleep and wakefulness, like the valley before the climb.

Waking up into a new day can be like binge drinking on a gulp of air after a deep dive.

You are here.
You are present.
You are awake.

You are here.
You are… human.

You are… awake.

You wiggle your fingers, you pop your toes and then you finally announce to yourself, 
I have arrived.

A new day.
A new beginning.
A new mountain.
