Donna, Rather than a relativistic time dilation/contraction, I think that you may have stumbled on the old mind-matter conflict that has haunted philosophers since the beginning of time.

We are all made of atoms and molecules ...right?
Yet the mind doesn't behave like atoms and molecules .... right?

Somehow the two are intimately related though so that the morphines generated during your stretching exercises act as pleasure/stimulation on your mind. This in turn makes you want to write.

Trouble is you need the pleasure/ stimulation to get you started on the exercise in the first place.

Its a problem! LOL

If it weren't for the spin-off complications, I think I might get a dog as a pet. A morning walk across the common is then guaranteed and will break straight into the pleasure/stimulation cycle, ensuring a productive day.

Hummm .. or I might try persuading Mrs Q to experiment with morning sex. Purely as a way of boosting productivity of course! *wink*

Donna Cummings

Q, you're making my head hurt with all that science talk! LOL I better have some more coffee.

You're right about the pleasure/stimulation thing though. It's definitely a "chicken or the egg" conundrum, because you need one to start the other, but where do you start? LOL

I think your solution with Mrs. Q is the way to go. :) All in the name of science. And productivity. LOL

Oh my god this line really got to me - mostly because it's so true:

"I don't even want to think about how many minutes have died believing I was going to show up soon."

I could laugh AND cry at this because it is exactly me.

Can I do morning yoga with you? We can stretch and ignore our pounding headaches and then write our asses off...

Good lucky, lady.

And tell the minutes we'll be there soon....

Donna Cummings

Julie, I'm glad you love that line -- can you believe I almost cut it before I posted this? LOL I was too fond of it, though, so it survived.

I'll let the minutes know we're on our way. . .soon. We've got a lot of stretching and writing-our-asses-off to get done too. :)
