V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #87: morning

“You do more in a morning than some people do in two weeks,” a graphologist once told me, having analyzed my handwriting.

It was not news to me. I was raised to be a morning person. Waking before the rest of the family and getting ahead of the day was my way. Until I got sick, that is. Then everything changed. Mornings became impossible and nights sleepless.

The addition of dogs to our family has forced me to be a morning person again. Eager yips wake me before seven, and the demands are real. My body is having a hard time complying. I am ready to nap within an hour of waking, and I need several rests throughout the day. My mind, however; is liking the shift.

I have plans for mornings, like to catch a sunset, or write for an hour before having breakfast, or sketching, or….

What do mornings mean to you? Create a post – be it poem, prose, photography, or other – and drop a link in the comments below, or try a pingback (they are unreliable lately).

Look forward to your responses.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. You have the writing challenges VJ! Let me share here: Coffee is a morning ritual that breathes life into each day. Lighting my way. Warming my heart. Energizing my spirit. Quickening my step. I couldn’t imagine a more sparkly start to my day then Coffee. Breath. Light. Warmth. Energy. All in one cup that overflows for the rest of my day… xoxo
