I got up at 4:15 AM this morning. Jeremy is headed off to Denver to do a project, so fur baby Roxy and I hopped in the pickup to deliver him to the airport and avoid parking charges. I find it fascinating to look at the "middle of the night world." Not much traffic out, I peek into the offices and shops to see if anyone has arrived to start the day. It's interesting to wonder about the few other cars that are on the road at this hour. Where are they going and what is their story?
In any case, when I got home, it would have been my normal routine to crawl back into bed for a few hours. Instead, this morning, I found myself catching up on news, reading, and enjoying my morning coffee. As 7:00 approached, it dawned on me (no pun intended) that it's still dark outside (thanks to Daylight Savings Time), and I can enjoy the dawn.......
Um...excuse me...who are you, and what have you done with Lynn???!!!!
I am a night owl, remember? I should be panicked because I'm up this early...Why, oh, why, didn't I catch a few more hours of sleep?
And then it hit me...
It Doesn't Matter!!!
One of the very best things about the Encore Voyage is that we can listen to the circadian rhythms of our bodies, wake when we feel rested, and sleep when we don't!
And that my friends, is one of the very best attributes of retired life!
