Stories from a life in progress.

Early up

It's 5:30 a.m., and I am awake. Today is a rare day when I am the first one up in the house (usually I am the last).

Choices are everywhere. My usual choice when I wake early and can't fall back asleep is to sigh and lay in the dark, trying to keep my hyperactive brain calm enough to perhaps nod off again. Today, though, I don't want to lay in the dark. It will be a busy day, and here I have an unexpected chance to add to my blog and get a little peace and quiet before the chaos descends.

I'm off to soak in the stillness. Happy Thanksgiving!
