I make it a habit to read poetry and essays in the early morning (pre-meditation) and then, using the ways that the language has stirred my brain, I will write.

The mornings are quiet. My mind is alert (did I mention the cup of coffee?) and ALSO a little in the dream world. So the creativity is fluid.

Interesting to think about how to harness the groggy energy. What are your thoughts on that? I tend to use that time to plow through tasks that don’t require much more than rote action.
