A man, his boy and his dog

In the very early morning my man is the one who sets the alarm, opens up the house for the day, wakes my boy and sets out on their daily walk with Bono, the family Viszla. But as he travels overseas with Miss M, I am having to rise early and get the day started for us all.
We are blessed to live so close to the river and have an amazing walking track to visit each day. It is pitch black outside right now, so the walks are harder first thing in the morning. On the weekend though we all enjoyed our walk. Bono was able to chase a Wallaby along the track, explore the river and get lost in the woodlands. I was conscious of the fresh air, the space and the quite. A sort of freedom we take for granted. I wonder what China feels like today.
