    hey y’all, what do you like to do in the morning? I like to head outside first thing to greet the sun with prayers and ceremonial tobacco. I’ve started singing too.

    In good weather I go outside. When it’s cold or stormy I stand at a window and look out. I have a set of prayers I use for each of the four directions and center. They are mostly about gratitude and help in living through the coming day to the best of my abilities. I always end with a variation on the psalm that says “this is the day created for us, so let us be glad and rejoice in it.”

    I do not remember when, but I learned a song from one of Sandra’s teachers and later heard another one sing it often sing shortly after sitting up. Morning Sun, Morning Sun is its name. There is a pretty poor quality version of it on YouTube with very loud drums, but, you can hear the tune if you are not familiar with the song, etc.

    Beyond that, it just depends on the day. If there is nothing in the morning or not until late morning anyway, then perhaps sit outside for a while. Who knows. Either way, how can I walk through nature and not feel as if I am only flowing through myself. There is really no boundary there, after all, we are all one, right?
