For decades, our alarm woke me up at 6:10 on weekday mornings. And although we rarely set our alarm now-a-days, I am usually awake by 6:10 anyway. Peter is often out of bed even earlier.
Recently, I discovered the joy of staying in bed for a while. As I lie there, I think about last night’s dreams or what I want to accomplish on the day ahead. Sometimes, I just watch the room become brighter. Sometimes I think about what I will share on 80-something.
What I can’t understand is why I waited for seven years after retiring to adopt this great habit.
