Most people are sleeping.
My whole family is.
I should be, too. But my creativity is alive and kicking right now.
I need to be up early.
Because that's how the world functions. You know: "The early bird gets the worm." or "Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise." And in order to be productive, I should go to bed at night and get up early in the morning and like it.
But, see....the thing is...I DON'T.
I've tried, many times in fact, to function on a "normal" schedule. And I thought certain things would force the change. But, alas, it has not.
And nights like tonight-when my creative mind is bursting with thoughts and ideas, I feel really frustrated. I think "Damn you muse! Why are you bothering me now?"
And then I smile. Because no one is awake to judge me. My phone isn't going to ring. And my kids do not need to be fed. Yeah, I might be tired tomorrow, but right now is ALL MINE.
|MOON AND SKY|

The crickets are chirping. The moon is high in the sky.
And I need to write.
So, what could be wrong with that?
Nothing, I say. Nothing at all.
So, good night world. My muse and I have some creating to do!
