The Magic Hour

No, this is not an piece about the old Magic Johnson talk show! It's 3:34 a.m.- I have read that the hours between something like 3 and 5 a.m. are the "God Hours" or the "Magic Hours". Apparently, it's a very creative time for a lot of people. The freaks who can't sleep like the rest of the world.

Normally, I CAN sleep. And I LOVE to sleep. But when I wake up in the middle of the night tossing and turning and unable to fall back asleep, it feels miserable. So when I read about this potential MAGIC, I decided the next time I woke up during these hours, I would get up and create!!

I had invisioned it like this: I would wake up, get out my guitar, start noodling around with it, and very soon a brilliant song would unfold that was so easily coerced from my subconcious- It would be magical.

But my house is small. And at this hour, quiet! And I can't seem to feel free to do much guitar playing, singing, or songwriting when I feel I should be whispering.

So instead, I worked a little on my latest book review, which I now do for the Diddly News. And now, here I am. It's not feeling like Magic, and it's not feeling like God. So I guess I'll try reading, and then hopefully going back to sleep soon so I don't feel like something very unmagical, and extremely un-God like tomorrow.
