Setting the mood…

The following links are intended to be read in the order they appear.  The entries for midnight through 2 a.m. were in fact written at the times indicated.

Midnight

Open Book

This morning, a friend texted me the following meme, coincidentally, not having seen my Open  Book post:

new-day

1am

After writing Open Book, I half fell asleep, but then I woke up again and turned on the light by my bed.  Here is an email I sent to a friend  at 1 a.m. last night:

1am

2am

I drifted off again, and as before I tossed and turned, and the words kept popping into my head, and I continued writing..

At the gates of the castle

3am

I can do no more justice to the ambiance of 3 a.m. than the lyrics written by Bryan Yale and Rob Thomas:

She said it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She’s always worried about things like that
She said it’s all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it’s raining
And she screams and her voice is strained
And

She says baby
It’s 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes
The rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

She’s got a little bit of something, God it’s better than nothing
And in her color portrait world she believes that she’s got it all
She swears the moon don’t hang quite as high as it used to
And she only sleeps when it’s raining
And she screams and her voice is strained…
And

She says baby
It’s 3 am I must be lonely
Well heaven she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

She believes that life is made up of all that you’re used to
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway
But outside it’s stopped raining

She says baby
It’s 3 am I must be lonely
Well heaven she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

Well it’s 3 am I must be lonely
Well heaven she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes

 4am

Be with It

5am

Pure of Heart
