This morning at the end of a three mile run, I was greeted with a glorious red sunrise. The old saying "Red at morning, sailor take warning" popped into my head, and was a small consideration when I dressed for the day.
Now, as I leave work, headed to meet my special someone for dinner on a day of the year that I have rarely had someone to share in the Hallmark moment, the sky is once again reflecting hues of red. The air around me smells almost pink, there is so much warm light glowing all around me. I begin to wonder if Mother Nature is playing games with us as "Red at night, sailor's delight" runs through my thoughts.
Perhaps today was a day for the Earth to celebrate as well, and she donned her red cap this morning in honor of Valentine's Day, and a light burgundy shawl tonight to show her participation in this day.
...or maybe it was supposed to rain today, but the weather patterns changed and rain is no longer in the forecast. :)
Whatever the case may be, I am happy to have the opportunity to share some time with the important people in my life, and to tell them I care.
To all my fellow runners, and to my dear friends and family, I love you and wish you all the best, today and always.
