The best part of getting up early is watching the sun rise.
Today is for working, it is. Today is for nose down and finishing tasks and making milestones. I’ve marked out in my mind tasks to accomplish with each new position of the sun. The sun’s “here”, this is done. The sun’s “there”, that is done. The sun sets, and finished tasks will lay all about me, littering my desk but not my mind.
No time for play or foolishness today. Politics must wait, and beauty must sit on hold. Because today is for working, it is.
