Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning Magic
“I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.” J. B. Priestley
Every day I feel is a blessing… And I consider it a new beginning. Yeah, everything is beautiful. Prince
When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. Marcus Aurelius
There is so much beauty and magic in the morning. Everything awakens for a fresh start and the early morning sun sparkles… I never used to be a morning person but, one day, things changed and I’ve never looked back. Mornings are precious, beautiful and full of promise. Whether I’m walking on the aqueduct, by the Hudson River, by Audrey Hochberg Pond, in any beautiful park, or enjoying a cup of coffee with a slice of freshly baked banana bread, the mornings make my spirit soar.
“What inspires you, what excites you when you wake up in the morning?” Jennifer Aniston
Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night. William Blake
The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star. Henry David Thoreau
When I take my morning walks, I meander through town; I say hello to familiar faces, enjoy the colorful blooms, and capture shots of things that interest me and I hope you too. Come back later for an explanation my shots including that dove/pigeon in the basket with her surviving offspring… Yes, they are not stuffed birds.
“Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise.” George Washington Carver
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day. Dalai Lama
Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day, which must be done, whether you like it or not. James Russell Lowell
When don’t take each day for granted, we learn to see the magnificence of our earth… there is much to be grateful for, much to see and love in nature… much to hold close to our hearts. May your mornings rise and meet you with grace and joy!
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: MORNING What does your morning look like? For this week’s photo challenge, publish a new post with an image that means morning to you. We’re especially interested in creative and unique takes on the theme — bonus points to those who think beyond the usual sunrise photo!
Positive Motivation Tip: Cherish the morning hours and the blessings of a fresh start.
