The sun is peeking over the horizon as we drive to Marion. The Iowa sky is some of the prettiest sky I have seen. This morning is no exception. As the sun begins to rise the fields begin to slowly wake. The cows, sheep and horses start to stir. As we pass a farm the lights are on in the kitchen. The farmer is up early to tend to his fields, feed his livestock. In the stillness of the morning you can almost feel the earth sigh as she begins another day.
