Daily Prompt: New Dawn


How often do you get to (or have to) be awake for sunrise? Tell us about what happened the last time you were up so early (or late…).


I just can’t stay up all night. I can’t give you the exact number but it’s so far only five times or so in all my life. Never in the past ten or fifteen years. Only if there was no other way. When I was young and vigorous enough, at least I tried to. When I was a junior high school student and was in the school art club, I often proclaimed that I should not go to bed without finishing my art project. I would say I would stay up all night. It was the day before the deadline, you know. But I couldn’t hold my concentration at all. I often almost put my pain brush into my coffee! So I most often hastily finished my stuff or did the rest in the morning.

Well, I just remember. Only once, I stayed up to dawn just reading. I just couldn’t put it down.

  1. That must have been a good book! You have made what we would call a Freudian slip. It is named after Sigmund Freud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freudian_slip.
    It is when you unconsciously say the wrong thing but it is what you really mean. You typed pain brush instead of paint brush which is what it probably felt like at the time. Of course it could just have been a typo too!
