Before and after all the noise.
I gave guitar lessons from age 17 to 32 at a music store in Portland (Beaverton). This meant that I was inside a studio under florescent lights from 3:00 to 8:00 PM during the week. When I left to go to grad school in Chicago, I had two wonderful experiences: fall, with leaves, and dusk. Twenty years later, those are still my favorite things. I love working in my studio and turning on my lights while there is still a little bit of light outside. For some reason, I feel cozy and in a holiday spirit. I once visited Philadelphia in the fall and walked from the art museum to Rittenhouse Square at that time of day. I had a coffee and felt, I don't know, quasi-spiritual, which is not normally a feeling I have and certainly not associated with any particular belief.
I have also gone through periods of years of staying up late in a studio writing music. As others have mentioned, it is nice that the hub-bub of the world is calmed down and my mind can move faster, unfettered.
At other times, I have liked getting up around 5:00 AM. When I was studying math, I had about two hours where my mind could open up enough to handle the structures I was dealing with. After a couple of hours, I started hitting brick walls, so done for the day with that.
What a great thread. I'm enjoying reading every single post.
Summer mornings from about 5-9am.
This is a great first post, friend.
I work nights and I'm currently job hunting so my consciousness schedule is all over the map
I love seeing the sunrise, I really love seeing the sunset. My favorite part of the day would have to be my first sip of black coffee.
No more worries about:
- things that I have to do
- Finding something to entertain me
- thinking about how badly I suck at guitar
- feeling old
Just the blissful release of unconsciousness...
When it's too late for sunglasses and too early for car lights.
