Dawn

Oh, it is nice to go to bed at 10:30, instead of usual 12:30, and then get up before sun-up and watch the day break. I am sleeping better, with change of medication.  The weather is warm and I sleep on top of the bed, uncovered.  I sprawl and enjoy. I just flop down and relax.

The sun comes up slowly and it gets light gradually. It is impressive and delightful. I wish I lived at a place where I could go outside before sun up.  It would create too much stir at the old folks home where there are attendants on duty all night, and switches on the doors.  If you go out at night, the call systems tells the staff, "South-east door alert. The door has been opened."  And then, "The South-east door is closed...the alert is cleared."  All that alarm because you want to look at the stars or watch the sun come up.  And then the questions..."Did you go outside? Why?"

"To look at the sun come up."

"That's not an official activity.  Please let us know before you go out."

It is not worth the hassle.

SUGGEST it as an ACTIVITY!  Although I doubt the Activities Director would cherish being up, dressed, and to work before dawn!  OR...report to care staff on your way out...."GOING OUT TO WATCH SUN UP, SEE YOU AT BREAKFAST".  This all said as one who does enjoy BEING up, but not GETTING up early in the morning.  Once I'm up...all is well.
Luv Kate
