Day & Night
Vol. 3, Issue 2 | August - November 2017
I’ve always joked that I’m a “child of the day,” a Biblical reference that held extra meaning after dozens of late nights in the art studio during my college days. Those evenings took a tole on my mind, body, and soul, and while I never plan to re-enter into the habit of late-night working, I wouldn’t trade those memories for anything in the world.
Mornings, while often dreaded, are undeniably refreshing. Anybody who has worked an opening shift at a coffee shop can attest to both the personal battle of waking oneself up in still-dark hours and the quiet reverence an empty space has as the sun creeps slowly through the windows. While often sped through in an attempt to get things rolling, these special hours can provide fresh perspectives and a renewed spirit.
