"Sound of Silence"
Late nights do not agree with early mornings. It's a conundrum. I am not a "morning person". But necessity often trumps nature. Left to my own devices, I'd sleep. Unfortunately for me, my own devices went AWOL another lifetime ago. I do love my family. And on most days, I wouldn't trade them for anything. Yet, I've come to realize I kinda relish the sound of silence that accompanies morning. The stillness. The moments of just "being", when the house is empty. Except for moi.
...that first cup of coffee sipped in stillness
...contemplating the quiet promise of a new day and all it's possibilities
...straightening up the left behinds of the familial unit, and knowing it will remain anally tidy for the few hours until their return
--singing whatever the morning magic moves me. singing it wonderfully. I should have been a rock star. actually, I kinda am in the mornings...the dogs tell me so. they don't lie.
...knowing I only have to answer to me. I can be kinda tough on myself tho. I can usually handle it.
I think I might be going thru an identity crisis. I've never considered myself an introvert, I've always been rather outgoing and usually enjoy the company of people. Okay, not ALL people. But quite a few of them. Can you be an introvert in the mornings, and an extrovert the rest of the day? Or maybe I'm just getting old. Old people always seem to like mornings. And watch the Weather Channel. And always know where to buy the cheapest gasoline. 1 outta 3. NOT old, yet. Apparently I'm just a "relatively" young introvert who relishes the silence...and mornings.
Here's where I "link up" today.
