for the past several days i have been waking up very early. so early that i wake up to full darkness. i would have thought because of the medicines i'd sleep longer. guess i was wrong.
but then i like waking up early. it reminds me of how baguio used to be -- quiet, nippy, still. except back then the stillness remained till full light.
if i listen hard enough i could hear the birds waking up and chattering, households beginning to stir. the cold carries the sound and it's really nice to just lie down and feel the world wake up. my only regret is that our windows do not face east but i do see the light creeping up.
i like dawn. it's hopeful. so what if i wake up disoriented and wondering where i am?
