Rain is hitting the tin roof of the house and all else is quiet. Cars aren’t going up and down the road very much. Birds are singing joyfully as if they are giving thanks for the rain. The dogs are circled around me dozing, contented.
This is a good day.
Last night I wasn’t very sleepy so I went to work. Writing between 10:30 PM and 3:30-4:00 AM is a magical time to write. The house is quiet. Most of the day concerns are settled or put to the side until the next one and the mind is freer to be creative. No wonder Emily Dickenson loved to write around three o’clock in the morning!
