The world according to me, is divided into two types of people – those who Wake-up-and-GO and those who Wake up and Get There Eventually. I belong to the latter group and need two cups of coffee to get me on the road to Eventually. Whatever your type, everyone has their routine and morning rituals to kick-start their day.
This week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge is to share pictures of MORNING RITUALS
Are you one of those people who wakes up, goes for a run and then gets a cup of coffee? Or do you wake up already late and grab something on the way? Perhaps, coffee is not your thing. Would you rather have some tea? Perhaps a mug of fresh soya milk and today’s newspaper?
Maybe the beverage isn’t the most important part of waking up. A full English breakfast provides enough fuel for today and tomorrow. According to this article, a typical ‘fry-up’ includes eggs, sausages, back bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans and hot buttered toast. It can also include black pudding, something which I gather is not a sweet chocolate dessert.
A lighter, fast food breakfast comes from McDonald’s. Whenever I’m on the road, an Egg McMuffin is my breakfast sandwich of choice. In Canada, the Meal comes with hash browns. I like the healthier option in Japan, where it comes with a salad in a cup. A salad in a cup might seem awkward to eat. The secret is to eat the salad with chopsticks!
Some morning rituals don’t involve food. Every morning in Hong Kong’s Bird market, song bird owners visit the nearby gardens to walk and ‘air’ their birds. The elaborate bird cages are hung from rafters and both humans and birds delight in the peace and tranquility of the surroundings.
I look forward to seeing your photos of MORNING RITUALS. Feel free to use your photo archives or better still, plan to take some pictures tomorrow morning.
