I meditate, but with an ear open in anticipation for the birds to sing.
Their music begins with one, usually a mockingbird, then others join in a few at a time until there is a full choir in concert.
The affect on a seemi-awake consciousness is more powerful than the Mormon Tabernacle Choir at its best. I am not sure how long this continues. Eventually the sounds soften and seem to be more in the distance.
When resting there is definitely over for me, mostly because I am beginning to think about what I will be doing soon, I get up, put something on depending on the weather, and head for the coffee pot.
A new day begins its unfolding journey.
I follow along willingly.
