3:00 am

It really is amazing how calm, quiet and solemn the fall is at 3 in the morning. In the past, even on night that I would stay at the bar til closing, I would almost never see 3 in the morning. It the past few days I have seen 3 in the morning, many times. As I walked out of the post office this morning, it was so still. Kansas is normally a windy place and you can usually hear the wind blowing past your ears. But, at 3 in the morning, when you open you mouth to speak, the steam rise and words fall to ground all piled up and dew covered. I am so tired I could fall asleep at a red light (with my foot on the break), but i still am amazed at the beauty of 3 in the morning. Now don't get me wrong,it is not a time of day that I really want to conscience, but while I am here, ماأجمل مذا (How beautiful this is...). And I have a feeling that I will be seeing more of 3 in the morning more and more over the next couple of weeks, until I finally call it quits at the post office.

Sometimes it is wonderful to see the land before the ants get busy.

Want a surreal moment? Go to any nearby park at 6AM on New Year's Day. It has this eerieness to it. No one is on the road, no one is moving about. All the cars are covered in frost. Only the animals are out. And the world has this beautiful shine to it.

A perfect way to start the year. ;)

It's amazing how quiet it can get, eh? Even where I live with a freeway not more than half a mile a way, it's very quiet at 3am.

I hope you've gotten the sleep you deserve.
