The Beauty of Illusion

The social construct of time has hit again!  And for once, it was in my favor.  Yes, we lost an hour.  But, the mind trick of telling myself I slept in until 8:45 am this morning made my body feel drunk with sleep. 

Even if it was just an illusion.

And a hard fought one...all four of us were enjoying the 4-5 a.m. hour...(or was it the 3-4 hour?)...fighting hard to get everyone back in their beds with eyes closed.  ("Just close your eyes.  Just try it.  Close them.  Close them...")

Even if we will all suffer tomorrow morning.  Particularly because I am still up.  Teeth unbrushed.  Contacts in.  And it is almost midnight.  

(Happy Birthday, Em!)
