up with the sun

it's nearing midnight, but this morning (in the 5 & 6 o'clock hours) found us across the freeway, watching the sun rise over denver's skyline. i woke at 4:28 a.m. all wide-eyed and bushy-tailed, knowing it had to be today, on this morning. i squashed my own tiny objection -- "oh, there will be more mornings. stay asleep." qualms of that kind have no place here. there is an empowerment in not putting off, in sacrificing sleep for slivers of the half-awake calm, of the specific state of mind that chasing a sunrise for no quantifiable reason brings.
