One thing that does not change, as I learn my middle-aged map, is my love of the very early morning hours: night sky to predawn light to day.
Since high school, I’ve been getting up early to have time for prayer and other creative work. I’d study for a test again. My dad was up early as well, to put the finishing touches on his history lesson plans.
I don’t mourn youth, as I always looked forward to being older. For me anyway, language arts gifts take a lot of time and life to deepen.
