First light

The night is my companion

Solitude my guide

--Sarah MacLachlan, Possession

The morning has become my companion. I used to be a night person, able to stay up late and sleep in. And while I write a lot in the morning now, I'm not only a morning person. The whole night/morning thing is a false construct, for me at least. The energy I have stretches through the day. I'm flexible for day or night.

But the greatest insights I have into myself seem to come as the first light breaks the horizon.
