That's what the clock was showing when my eyes opened..... trust me I growled.
4 BLOODY A.M.??!! Usually I find a nice lil fantasy - close my eyes and drift back to sleep - but this morning there was no lil fantasy - only truth. And sometimes truth is hard and mean and hurts.
At 5 A.M. I got out of bed. Even Miss Ashes (the cat) thought I was nuts. I rationalized I used to get up at 5 A.M. every day when I was working...........
Miss Ashes followed me outside with my coffee - she sat beside me staring at me - I guess - trying to figure out what the hell her human was up to.
There is very little noise at 5 A.M. - oh I did hear a train whistle - far off in the distance - and I wondered 'freight or passenger'........ but it didn't matter really
There is no sun today - well not yet. Only dark clouds over head. Sort of suits my mood I guess.
Now I am sitting here at the computer with my coffee - Miss Ashes has gone back to her corner and curled up to sleep - and I wonder when I will find total peace in my heart again and can sleep once again
