I like this part of the morning when I am actually awake and not due somewhere. It’s quiet. There is no rush. I am not late. The sun waits to shine. Moments feel slower than in light.
But reality feels more real. And the depth and self-awareness we protect is glaring, scary and sometimes painful to study, change, forgive or address.
The dark is safety under the covers and concurrent, powerful transparency when not.
Why does the dark force us to ponder the moment differently than in light?
