Sometimes I wake up when it’s still dark outside my windows – an impressive feat at this pre-day-light-savings-switch time – and I bravely go out to investigate the pre-dawn world.

Did you know that the stars that make it through the night are so much brighter than all the rest?

It’s walking around on these early mornings that I’m reminded of the sweetness of adulthood. The world is wide open and welcoming me in to an endless buffet of options. I find myself struck by the warmth of the feeling that I’m running my own show. Knowing what to do with this information is where I get hung up, but the feeling is a comfort at this hour.
