I woke up. I’m not tired.
– No one else is awake.
That’s sort of the point. No one’s making noise aside from that confused rooster nearby that crows from 2 a.m. onward. And the dinosaurs that live upstairs have fallen silent. They must have fallen silent, because there was quite a racket before they became silent.
– What are you going to do with the time?
Clearly, I’ll write. I’ll read. Check the weather outside, see if it will let me get some things done out on the land. Plan the day. Do some reading.
– Write? What about?
That’s a problem this morning. There’s nothing really on my conscious mind, so I’m free writing and having this conversation with you.
Don’t be a smartass.
