Oh to have an alert and fully functioning mind during daylight hours rather than during the peace, quiet and calm of darkness.
Oh to be able to do those things that need to be done when everyone else is awake, without having to go without sleep to do so.
My mind is fully aware, creative and able in the wee small hours. The light is not too bright and the world is not as distractingly noisy as during the day. I become totally focussed on whatever it is that I am doing - in the zone, if you will - while trying to do the same task in the daytime would find me frustrated, stymied and unproductive. My muses are nocturnal and so, it seems, must I be.
Now, as the rain continues and the birds begin their songs, the cats wake up and decide that it must be breakfast time, I finally start to feel sleepy, yawn my first yawn of the night and consider turning in for the day...
You may all have worked out by now that many of my public entries are going to be 'comments disabled'. That is the plan, for now at least, so that I can have my say, have non LJ-ers able to read what I write and not have to deal with nasty anonymous comments. Why don't I just disable anonymous commenting? So that those same non LJ-ers can comment if they wish on posts that do not have commenting disabled. Yeah, I know, "Make your mind up!" I am still trying to work out which would be best - to have to remember to disable commenting on some posts or to disable anonymous commenting on this LJ completely.
