Daylight Savings Time will be with us until November 6, so Lou and I are in for eating our breakfast in the dark until then. Only a few weeks ago, the light under the bedroom curtains at 6:00 a.m. was my signal that it was time to get up, feed Lou and make coffee. Now I want to linger awhile in the dark. It is the pup’s mezzo soprano clucking that awakens my reluctant conscience and I arise even though Buck’s wandering foot urges me to stay.
But the quality of the light, when it graces us with its presence, is different from summer light. Worth waiting for.
