    My True Self

    Night to me is my own form of meditation. It's a chance to be alone in silence. I like to work at night with low music in the background. I am the most productive, most intelligent, the most like myself at these "sleeping" times. I'm glad to see I'm not alone in that.

    I Love Nighttime

    Night And Day

    Although there are some things about my personality that never change-- my creativity, my random humor, my eccentricities, et cetera-- I have found I tend to be different during the daylight and dark night hours.  I am apt to be more jovial and sociable during the day, (although...
