The sun rose today at 5:27 a.m.
I know this because there is a program on my computer called F.lux that moderates light, brightening the screen at daybreak, dimming it at sunset.
I see it happen every day. Morning is my time.
I can’t remember the last time I slept in, weekends included.
And that’s okay. I’ve always kept what might be called farmer’s hours.
Early to bed, early to rise.
It was not a conscious choice, it’s just what always worked for me.
There’s that time just before I’m fully awake when I have the very best ideas.
Some call it inspiration. A light-bulb moment. An epiphany.
I just wish these revelations would come to me in the middle of the day.
Just once in a while.
