"But sunrise is so special: My soul feels that we have always known each other. You are my brahma muhutra."
There's something about sunrise that allows us to breathe deep, lungs expanding into the new day but in a gentle way.
This is how I begin most days of Earth Joy Writing: by looking around me and breathing, and then writing down what I see around and inside me.
The quote above comes from my novel, Shamrock and Lotus. In the story, characters from India and Ireland and America make journeys from the east to the west coast of Ireland to heal their pasts through encounters with the land.
Here I am, this sunrise morning, having come from the east to the west coast of America with my brahma muhutra, whose birthday is today!
Such earth. Such joy. Such writing.
Such a lovely beginning of this new day.
May sunrise bring you gentle expansion as you breathe into the beauty of who you were born to be.
