Waking Up

March 12th, 2012

It makes no sense, but even though we “lost” an hour in the time change, I feel more wide awake in the morning. For someone who has to be pried out of bed like a reluctant clam clinging to its shell, that’s miraculous. And when I get home after work, I’m energized to go walking, to cook, to do some writing. I don’t want to look too closely at this development for fear it will all vanish. Maybe I’ve been craving light without realizing it, and now I feel like I’m swimming in it. That fine-spun spring light that shimmers with golden pollen and transforms the most ordinary scene into a living page from an illuminated manuscript.

    Hi Nikki,

    I love reading your blog – so simple and yet often so pofound! I am curious about your comment “I don’t want to look too closely at this development for fear it will all vanish.” I’ve been relating the same way towards positivity in my life; meanwhile I tend to marinate in fears and failures. I think I’ve got the law of physics backwards…

    Come to think of it, I’m getting up earlier too and getting things done! Cheers!
