There’s something about waking up before the alarm bell (and turning it off so it doesn’t ring). It feels like stolen time, like magic time. It’s as if, in the dawning light of day, you could do anything. For this is time you didn’t think you’d have. There is no pressure, there is no expectation. You are free to simply be.
Perhaps we should all spend more of our lives, living as if our time were stolen.
