Rewinding my clock

I've just stayed awake through the night, moving from one thing to another without interruption - calmly, slowly. No hurry needed - the night belonged to me. Unstructured, but doing things I never seem to get around to otherwise. And as dawn breaks, I feel a deep sense of satisfaction. . . . and quite rested.

About once a month it calls to me. Usually beginning with the completion of a task on deadline - and then stretching out before me those delicious few hours where my mind settles down and the constant brain chatter of 'what next' and re-prioritizing the 'things to do' list goes away - and I actually get stuff done.

It's going to be a great day!
