When I was a little girl, we had a picture book called Animal Tales.  One of those tales was about a pig.  It professed that little pigs that went to bed early, and rose early would keep their tails curly.  (Looking back, it sounds like a bit of a ploy to get one’s children to sleep early.  Then again, no one wants their children to rise too early, do they?)

Anyways, after my recent post on writing at night, and why it worked for me, a friend shared this post from zenhabits with me.

Yep, he’s another one of those proponents of early to bed, early to rise.  He has 210,000 subscribers to his blog, so maybe he’s on to something.  He’s also a man with six kids, so I figure if he can do it, maybe I can too.

Maybe.  Not sure it’s something I want to work on yet.  But, the article tempts me with it’s promise of a glorious hour of sipping tea and reading a book, watching the sunrise.

When you think about it that way, who wouldn’t be tempted?
