Maybe it’s the sleep deprivation talking, but part of me loves early mornings. They are the perfect mix of isolation and reassurance. The house is perfectly still and the sound of my fingers hitting the keys is almost the only thing that I can hear; The soft rush of cars on the road by the house reassures me that the apocalypse hasn’t happened, it’s just early.
Whether this stolen moment is worth the itchy eyes and slowed thoughts is a debate for another time. For now I find myself here and have decided to relish the instant of calm that is such a rarity, not just for me, but for many.
So as the clock ticks and a distant airplane rumbles through the sky, I wish you a whispered good morning internet.
