I Am 6:49 am




You're the time of day right around sunrise, when the sky is still a pale bluish gray. The streets are empty, and the grass and leaves are a little bit sparkly with dew. You are the sound of a few chirpy birds outside the window. You are quiet, peaceful, and contemplative. If you move slowly, it's not because you're lazy – it's because you know there's no reason to rush. You move like a relaxed cat, pausing for deep stretches that make your muscles feel alive. You are long sips of tea or coffee (out of a mug that's held with both hands) that slowly warm your insides just as the sun is brightening the sky.

You and I are the same time! How about that! LOL

I love the Valentine dishcloth. It's too pretty to use on dishes. I'd have to use it as a washcloth.

And here I thought I was a night owl. It seems that I am 3:15pm:

I am the moment when the last bell rings and school lets out for the day. I am resistant to schedules and obligations, so i love feeling like i'm in control of my life again. i am the very moment when the second hand hits the 12, and the halls fill with noise and motion. Even if my after-school time is packed with activities, lessons, or a job, somehow, i just feel freer in the late afternoon than i do earlier in the day. Maybe it's all that blue sky and afternoon sunshine? Nah -- even on rainy days, 3:15 is always a beautiful time.
