    What's a Sleep In?

    What's a sleep in? For me any time after 0630. My average wake up time is around 0530 in the morning. If I've got a bit on the mind with work and other stuff, it's not uncommon for me to wake around 0400 and start work (I own my own business). I'm definitely one of those people...

    I am beginning my day,

    my week, with many on my mind. For all who are struggling, hurting, or trying like hell to stay above water...I send thoughts of comfort and encouragement. You are stronger than you think and someone is thinking of you. And those who are counting blessings and have survived...

    An Early Bird.

    I am always up at 6am on a workday. Normally in work by 7:30. Weekends I'm up no later than 8am. I dont like tea in bed, once I'm up that's it.

    It's my favorite time of the day.

    My solitude, a time to gather my thoughts and plan my day. This morning I'm trying to keep events of the present from waking memories of my past. I must remind myself that this is a different time and, circumstances, while similar, are still very different than they were in my...

    But I Must Be In Bed By 9pm

    Somehow my sleep pattern got latched up to a 9pm start. If I don't start sleeping by this time, my next moment only comes two hours later. Then, I make a break around 2:15 am. Perhaps I wake up shortly again at 4am, and then I keep sleeping until 6am.  I'm happy with these...

    There's a very faint hint of fall in the air

    this morning. This old, familiar chill giving me goosebumps on my arms and legs seems to make the coffee taste just a bit better than usual. My favorite time of year is approaching. And today, this morning, THIS Friday...it makes me feel safe.

    Hours Into The Day

    This morning as I sat here with my 3rd cup of coffee, I wondered how many others were sitting all alone, the rest of the household sound asleep in their beds. That inspired me to see if there was actually a group of people like me searching out for some early morning...
