Our natural circadian rhythms are barely allowed to keep our bodies in balance with rest and wake cycles being altered to fit our overcharged lives. One of the things I do enjoy is allowing myself to wake up with the light. Somehow at nearly the same time every morning, no matter how late I stayed up the night before, and without an alarm clock I just know it is time to get up. For years I was very in tune with my wake sleep cycle and enjoyed the ease and quiet time of the very early morning before anyone else was awake. I am acutely aware in the very early morning but I don’t want to talk to anyone. I like to think and have my coffee and draw. Sometimes I write…but then the schedule kicks in and shuts down that delicate time. I cannot even hear that level of quiet any other time of the day, so I feel like the light and the quiet do contribute to creating a zone of self awareness and calm. Mysterious.
