6:AM : The best hour of the day, or too close to your 3:AM bedtime?
Since the 18th of June my best hour of day is 2:AM , it will continue till the 17th of July. Ramadan started on June 18th and will end after 17th July.
I wake up at 2:AM to eat something, say my prayer and go back to bed at 3:30 AM. My Golden Hour in my mind is 9:03 PM . This is the time I get to eat and drink my meals after 19 hours of fasting.
In the morning I wake up usually at 7:AM , today I stayed in bed till 8:AM. Yesterday my quiet routine was interrupted by loss of heat and hot water. The system probably took a break, I could not let it because every room in the house was freezing. In June you may ask, yes our weather does not observe the same routine as the other places on the planet.
Fortunately we have 24/7 burner service, the men very kindly came and fixed what was ailing our furnace. It’s working like a charm, and I hope it continues!

The Golden Hour for me was, 6: 20 Am today. This time is based on the prayer schedule. I woke up at 6:05 Am and waited for the exact prayer time. In the meantime I washed and got ready.When it was time,I started my prayer.Morning prayer takes little more than five minutes to complete,this is mandatory,besides I include another twenty minutes. I got the idea from my friend,she prays for her parents and other relatives past and present.
I started about eight years ago. It gives me a very good feeling to pray for my parents,my relatives and my good friend. I do hope my prayer will bring peace to my near and dear ones.
6 :00 AM is a golden hour for me. I finish praying in twenty-five minutes. I then have my breakfast. I wait for the daily prompt which is built into my schedule. I look for Tagore’s poems to translate,some days I like to do the ones that are simple as well as meaningful. All of his poems and songs are delightful and full of important messages,if we try to understand. I am also able to do housework and take care of other worldly matters,it gives me a lot of time to get everything done.
If I go to bed at 3:00 Am my whole day will be wasted and I’ll accomplish nothing.
