Morning news

I slept easily and well last night, before I woke to the news about the Oscars ‘incident’ involving Will Smith and Chris Rock last night. It happened in the early hours of the morning, and was now being covered by the UK media – it was all over the morning news. I watched the moment the incident happened and, more than anything, it was unfortunate and made me feel uncomfortable.

I try not to ‘take in’ too much in the mornings, and rather remain centred and away from screens and from the news. I remember in my commuting days I often used to devour the Metro newspaper (a free morning newspaper) on the way to work, and then the Evening Standard (a free evening newspaper) on the way back.

I went to the gym this morning and now just getting settled down to my coffee shop writing and focused work. I’m sat at a different table in here this morning, peach-iced-tea-with-lemonade in tow. It’s a refreshing beverage after my morning workout.
