I’m a bit miffed that this is one of the cases where translation doesn’t work at all. I would so have loved to just post this picture without comment, but let me start at the beginning.

It was early morning, I started to gather the makings for breakfast on a tray, and suddenly the early morning sun shone in, bathing everything in golden light. Which is why the German proverb Morgenstund hat Gold im Mund  immediatley sprang to mind.

I don’t like the translations I found which basically are variations of the early bird catches the worm. We have the exact same saying, you can translate it literally.

What Morgenstund hat Gold im Mund means literally translated is morning hour has gold in its mouth. You really can’t compare that to birds and worms, can you…
