night owl in the early morning

I am a night owl by nature. If I had my druthers, it would be late to bed & late to rise all the time.

I am also a nomad, currently wandering the world (taking care of all of my wonderful clients with the help of strong internet connections). As part of my wanderings, I’m doing a lot of pet and house sitting. Due to the needs of many of the animals I care for, I have to get up early. (In some cases, very early!)

I may never shift to being an early riser when I’m on my own, but there is something about doing it for some other living creature that makes it ok. Having the need come from outside myself makes a massive difference.

And sometimes, you see an arrow in the sky pointing your direction on your early morning dog walk in rural Italy. 🙂

Have you ever done something for someone else that you wouldn’t normally do yourself?
