One With The Universe

6:00AM: the best hour of the day, or too close to your 3:00AM bedtime?

Absolutely! Especially in this job when I get off work at times like 1:30 am or 3:30 am :D

I actually woke up earlier than 6am this morning but didn’t get out of bed till a little after 7 just because it was a bit cold as it had rained all night and hence I didn’t want to get out from under the covers and tried to go back to sleep. But the lower temperatures actually stimulated me enough that I was wide awake and I was just thinking about stuff for a while before I decided to get up and go brush my teeth and wash my face.

On the rare occassions that I do wake up at 6am and especially on not too hot days, I am aware of how crisp the morning feels like. I like riding in a bus or a car with the windows down at these times and feel the wind in my face and air. I feel somewhat euphoric. I remember one particular morning coming back home after an all nighter at work and drinking in the glorious morning on that long ride back home at about 6:15 am or so. And on my phone’s headphones a wonderful song came on and I was so in tune with the feeling of that song that for a brief moment I felt like I was one with the universe.

Then the moment was gone.
