N is for Night Owl

| May 5, 2014

I used to be a night owl. Sometimes I would stay up till sunrise. My most creative self seemed to come alive then. There was something mystical in the serene of the night. With what felt like the whole world asleep, everything was mine for the taking. Sleepless nights almost energized me. Now as I grow older I can no longer stay up at night. When I do everything grows foggy and I become moody.  Now most of my creativity comes in the morning and because the mornings are so rushed I feel a sense of loss. The night is eternal. It makes me question, why do these rhythms change, as we grow? How do our rhythms affect our creativity?
