I Have A Nasty Habit

I have a nasty habit of getting up very, very, very early. And, honestly, I love doing it. Like 3:00am, just the perfect time to wake up and smell the coffee, or in my case, tea.

Seems like the only time I can hear myself -- just ME -- think. No phones ringing. No doorbell buzzing. No kids needing a snack. No street noise.

A big, wide, ocean of time all to myself, where I can think about just about anything and scribble it down as well.

And later, like 5:00am, I crawl back into bed and sleep like those rag-doll babies, limbs nearly disconnected, they look so floppy and happy. And the dreams you can have in that early morning snooze time ... they are absolutely incredible.
