Early morning writing like this seems to be drug of sorts for me, one I don’t get to enjoy as often as I’d like, either ‘cause I stay up too late writing and doing work stuff the night before, or I have the last glass of red too late.. something, but I’m here now.  05:53, on couch downstairs while wife’s at intense workout class.  Like I wrote in the 1,000+ word waterfall I just wrote, I have the rest of my life to ‘go back to sleep’.  What I want to do with my life requires being up at hours like this, being uncomfortable and anxious, and creatively electrifying in that useful uneasiness.

  1. Ah the trauma of young fatherhood. I remember it fondly. Enjoy as it will pass oh so quickly. I do get to enjoy my Grandson now, with much more patience than I had as a young father.
