morning shower

the long warm shower on a cold, dark morning, after too few hours sleep feels so heavenly, like a comforting balm or just-tight-enough hug.
its unusual for me to shower in the a.m., i prefer the cleansing comforting evening shower; the idea of washing the day off - reflecting on everything and washing away all the rubbish (and after a days teaching teenagers, there is plenty to wash off!), in preparation for the restful restoring sleep.
I really needed that soothing balm of a shower this morning, after a string of late nights; some amazing nights, but long drives and late nights. After said shower, the morning felt softer - less severe.
