This morning lacks the child.

October 4, 2012

I woke up this morning and walked into my kitchen to find a sink full of dirty dishes. “Hmmm,” I say to myself, “I may as well take care of these now.” So I rinsed them and placed them into my dishwasher. Switch ON. Feeling less than energetic, I decided coffee would be a necessary tool this morning. I need to learn as much chemistry as I can every free moment I have which means this funk I woke up to must disperse as quickly as possible. I walk over to my desk and sit down. Every muscle, every fiber of my being feels as stiff as a board. Well it’s time to stretch, so I did. I then sat back down at my desk and took a drink of coffee. Perfection. I close my eyes and bring the cup towards my nose so I can bask in it’s grand spectacular presence. In my mind I am transported back to my old house in Divide, Colorado. 30 minutes on a dirt road in the middle of a forest, atop a mountain was a beautiful, secluded piece of heaven on Earth. The small 2 bedroom, 2 bath house had a porch that wrapped entirely around it, but at the front of the house, on the porch was a jacuzzi. Waking up in the middle of winter at this house was a welcomed treasure of experience. I was in high school at the time, staying with my mother and step father. I would always wake up hours before them on the weekend due to my predawn scholastic schedule. I’d make coffee or hot chocolate, depending on which voice in my head won that morning, and then I’d walk out on to my front porch and just stand in the magnificence. The ground, the trees, the vast view to my right, everything is blanketed in shimmering white powder. Snow gently oscillates from a greyish-blue sky and some how, by some kind and merciful force of the universe, I’m able to marvel in it wearing nothing but the boxers I woke up in 🙂

I recommend all, who have the opportunity, to visit Woodland Park and Divide, Colorado. The small mountain towns are friendly and unforgettable.

Well…I should get back to chemistry
