Start creative

Rising early is part of my routine–has been for a long time. This can mess with vacations, but it’s also a nice way to get stuff done while the house is still quiet. As a committed ‘morning person’, that’s typically the time of day when my energy and creativity is high–so the question is: how best to use that first hour (or two)?
