Dawn


  I've been thinking about circadian rhythms and about the master clock in our brains that make us function the way we do. Some of us are more productive in the early hours of the day like myself and others are the people that do their best work in the late hours of the day or even through the night like my husbands side of the family. My body clock is ruled by the light and I am always up before the sun, I start skittering as soon as my feet it the floor. I'm usually out the door with my dogs and now that they're older I find myself waking them to go.

I love the indigenous myths about creation, so many of them include the raven and the sun. I wanted to create "Dawn" since I know it like a best friend.




In my piece, Raven harnesses  the night and is ready to take it to the next portion on the globe while the sun is rising.



I've been dreaming up this piece for a very long time, I've had it next to me on my work bench, making sketches thinking and thinking and wondering just how I would do it.



Tell me about you, what are your natural rhythms? My son could have gone either way since these brain traits are inherited, he is a night owl.
