Early to Rise
I love to get up long before everyone else. Sometimes I discover that magic has happened overnight. I brew coffee by the light of a tiny nightlight-like fixture in the kitchen. When it’s ready, I either turn the light off and watch the first daylight seep into the sky and the rabbit make its way across the yard, or I do a crossword puzzle. The early hours are a treasure of silence and solitude.
I’m rarely up terribly late, preferring to go to bed early and rise early. Still, sometimes the writing is going so well that I don’t want to stop and lose the energy that’s happening.
The afternoon light has long faded into darkness but I keep typing. Eventually, I must listen to my stomach and go to the kitchen for sustenance. If I’m lucky, there’s a bit of leftover wine from the weekend. Pouring a bit into a glass, I return with some new ideas to the manuscript and before I know it, it’s midnight.
