Like Jackson, I too love the solitude and quiet of early mornings, which seem to be a rare opportunity for me where I don’t have any other obligations. However I am really not much of a morning person at all – what I love more than reading the news and sipping coffee on a clear morning is .. well, sleeping.

So my very early morning respites are limited and usually induced by other motivation, such as, for example, waking up at 3:45AM with a worsening sinus infection and no chance for sleep.

Thanks to the magic of oxymetazoline and pseudoephedrine, though, I feel much better.
