some people my, grand mother included, think the dawn is natures "quiet
time" there is less psychic interferance in ones local area at that
time, sleeping people are more easily effected and even nature itself is
quiter & more receptive to ones energies in a way deep night is not.
your sports analogy in the above post is good but for this i would use
the driving analogy, dawn is the uncrowded road and noon is the commuter
rush hour traffic jam in the highstreet

i seem to recall some sort of  amer-indian belief that the ritual should
contain a purposefull imperfection, that no matter how good one is a
certain imperfection will be routinly used to symbolize the necessary
humility and defferance that it is thought should accompany any petition
to any diety for any reason, though revenge and justice spells usually
dont contain this purposefull flaw.  this extends to the making of tools
and images also.  and in some asian art there is this type of
purposefull flaw denoting the artists inability to copy nature as
perfectly as nature is, and mystically this imposed flaw is ones own,
done at the time and to the tool so that it is kind of like the crooked
path that a demon cant follow, they being only abel to move in straight
lines dontcha  know:)
