    9/17/2014 11:22:10 AM, by ARRREAGLES

    It's all in the shadows. The mornings are filled with them. The way the earth is lit by nothing more than a reflection and the distant horizon.

    The alarm goes off at five fifty. I am up and out of the bed and off to pull on some clothing. It's a half drunkards walk, albeit minus the prerequisite alcohol that often drives such things.
