Don't go back to sleep.

Last Saturday I woke with the fog.  

I can no longer sleep past a certain hour.  It's not tied to what time I go to sleep, it's independent of that.  There is simply a line drawn in the universe that defines when I will wake.  I wonder if it's because as life gets shorter we shouldn't miss a minute of it.  Maybe those extra moments shouldn't be spent wondering why I'm awake but appreciating that I am awake.  And maybe there's something else out there waking up early too that I shouldn't miss.  It could be hidden in the fog.

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
                            Don't go back to sleep.
                                                         - Rumi
