Although it is still dark, the birdsong has begun. Soon it will be light.
Excitement builds as the black outside the window gives way to shades of grey.
The street light in front blazes brightly for a while, then is extinguished.
It is time.
The out of doors is calling.
The light of spring is calling, the enchanting time of morning as illumination moves across the pathways.
It begins in the treetops, washing over the branches with watercolors.
Slowly the moistness lifts skyward, melding into the atmosphere.
…and we have ignition!
