Observation

Waking up automatically is a wonderful and peaceful feeling. I've just noticed that for fifteen minutes after I do that, I have astounding insights into technical matters as if I have this total zen with the rational world.

Then it all goes downhill from there after I realise all the horrors I have to face later today.

"Morning amnesia: Nature's way of keeping you from waking up screaming."

Yup. I hate waking to an alarm because I usually wake up in the middle of some weird dream. If I wake up on my own, I get to feel all groggy and warm for a few minutes.

My problem is that if I wake up on my own, I'll feel all warm and groggy for a few hours. Pleasant, I suppose, but not so useful for getting anything done in my day. And plus, sometimes the alarm gets me to remember some really wacky dreams!

That quote is from a Dilbert strip, isn't it?

I've found that I'm able to write / compose prose with remarkably greater ease in my head when a computer is not available/convenient/appropriate than when an hour later I go to actually write it down.

My feelings of zen, like you describe, tend to happen on my way to sleep. When I wake up, I have astounding insights into the reasons why I'm fully justified to continue dozing in bed. Funny how these insights never seem to stand up to reason after the fact.

I love that time in bed in the morning. Weekends I'll spend hours there enjoying the ride of my thoughts. Fantastic.
