Alternatively, I could be referring to the predawn, Monday calm of working at my computer before returning to the daily happy chaos that is teaching - not chaos as in disorganized random events, but just the noise and bustle and ever changing world of kids, co-workers and information that is just that much more stimulus than can currently be found in my near silent building with my coffee and biology textbook. Of course, one of the main reasons that I returned to teaching after training as an engineer is that I missed the level of interaction with people that teaching provides. Teaching allows me to better appreciate solitude and calm, while I found engineering often provided solitude and calm, but sometimes could result in days of day spent mostly with my computer and the joys (and frustrations) of working with ArcView.
So, cheers to quiet mornings made better by days spent with people - and while I sometimes miss ArcView, I've yet to regret my choice to return to the classroom.
