this is the view from little m's changing table. 

it's what i look out at in the early morning, when little m is up and ready to play, and i am wishing for an hour more of rest. even though i'd rather sleep in (matt can attest to that), there is something very peaceful about waking up as the day is becoming, and the sky is growing lighter and lighter.

ever since i was a little girl i've loved to see the dark outline of trees against the dawn or evening sky. in the distance i can see the bay, and somewhat less beautiful, the bart train carrying people to work. as the train goes rushing by, i can hear it faintly, and it stands as a reminder that even though it would be nice to crawl under my covers and head back to sleep, that i am happy sitting on the floor, playing with blocks and puzzles as this new morning begins.
