I used to wake up in darkness. I spent more than eight years getting out of bed with blackout curtains draped over our bedroom windows.
They were necessary. They helped me fall asleep for my graveyard shifts. Just like 32 oz. of coffee helped me jumpstart my brain before sunrise.
This morning, I watched sunlight peeping thru the blinds. I listened to my dog snoring on my knee. I spotted my husband buried under the covers.
My body has shifted. I’m sleeping past sunrise.
I worked on my yoga practice in our new backyard this morning.
