I usually showered at night but today I was up before the alarm and had a busy day ahead. I wanted to be awake and refreshed. I turned on the water and adjusted the temperature to just below scalding. I watched the steam rise and water droplets appear on the shower curtain. I eased into the hot stream and relaxed as it melted away the grogginess.
