1. Five am. I make my way into the dark kitchen to start the coffee. A window is cracked open and the quiet patter of rain is soft and soothing to wake up to.
2. Thousands of beads of water collect on the windshield. It is a magical glass-scape for a few moments before running into rivulets.
3. Excitement (mixed with a bit of anxiety) as I prepare to travel. Off to New York to see my family!
