At 4:30 or 5:00AM you can usually find me either driving one of Silicon Valley’s twisty mountain roads or at my desk collecting my thoughts and making notes. By 5:30AM I’m at the gym and by 7:30 I’m at my desk eating breakfast and going over my todo list or email. I even get up early on the weekends. I say that I’m a “morning person” but I probably have terminal insomnia.

I don’t drink coffee because it elevates my blood pressure: I get through the day on attitude. I was definitely a darkling when I was a kid but this plate isn’t about that. It’s about announcing morning’s arrival in my noisy little e30 and taking life’s wheel.
