I am an early riser. My alarm clock first sounds at 4:45am. After a few not so gentle smacks of the snooze button, my eyes begin to open to the new day at around 5:00am. But during those in between moments of waking, my ears are fully alive and busy taking in the sounds of the morning. Those early morning hours are void of the chaotic sounds of the day. There is peace and stillness in the air as the uninterrupted sound of a gentle breeze ushers in a new day.
