Starting the Day, Never Routine, Pre-Dawn

1. An elderly woman takes the newspaper from the box at the end of a farm driveway. Her gray hair is neatly bunned and covered in a prayer cap. Her cotton housecoat flutters in the breeze.
2. Asiago cheese rubbed with olive oil and rosemary, crackers, and sweet grapes are my favorite lunch.
3. The coyotes have been running just before dawn each day. They must run very fast because one minute I hear them in one field and the next, they sound very far away. After the coyotes fade away, a screech owl calls. The darkness makes it all sound much more mysterious.


  1. #2 Sounds perfect for the end of summer, or any season for that matter
