After three weeks of lovely winter break we are back at it today. When my alarm went off at 6:10 this morning I was shocked and disturbed and proceeded to flail my arms around in a torrent of disbelief, knocking the alarm off it's shelf and kicking off my day. I find it cruel and unusual punnishment to subject humans to this hour of productivity at dark o thirty in the dead of winter. It's just plain wrong. In fact it may be some of the reason we are so messed up as a culture. Let us sleep! Let us listen and obey the natural rhythms of our bodies and the seasons. And just for the record I AM a morning person, but even I have my limits.
