Call to prayer 5/2/10

Woke up to the adhan today. The foreign routine has become quite familiar due to the mosque 3 blocks down the road. Sincerely, i've grown fond of the calls. The first call to prayer is around 4am and today I woke up without any sleep in my eyes.

 I wonder, "What makes it so great to wake up and be in immediate conscious thought?"

Well, whether you are fluent in Arabic or not, you know exactly what the adhan is calling one to do. The clarity and demand of the call to prayer is a great guide to contemplating my reason for being awake, alive, and living. Today, I seek gratitude and thankfulness for being.
