Magic hour

Magic hour. Its the time where opportunity floats and luck surfaces. Magic hour is to be discovered and find out; not something to be taken for granted.

Stephen King’s magic hour is such;

“There are certain things I do if I sit down to write. I have a glass of water or a cup of tea. There’s a certain time I sit down, from 8:00 to 8:30, somewhere within that half hour every morning. I have my vitamin pill and my music, sit in the same seat, and the papers are all arranged in the same places. The cumulative purpose of doing these things the same way every day seems to be a way of saying to the mind, you’re going to be dreaming soon.”  - via Daily Routines (Read and taken directly from the99percent.com)

I am yet to find my magic hours within the 24 hours daily cycle.

The term ‘Magic hour’ I am using is adopted from the movie, Reign of Fire. The whole magic hour thing is inspired from this article I read about Routines, Systems, and Spontaneity by the99percent which can be found here. The screenshot below is taken from the99percent site. It’s one of my favorite sites for creative readings.

ps: btw, its twenty ten already. That means, I am a year older now. Hopefully not just older, but wiser, fitter and better all together.
