I don't have dogs...I don't wake and go for walks at dawn. I have cats who insist I get out of bed and open the can and put it in their bowls. If they had thumbs they wouldn't need me at all.
So today I did something rather irregular for me. I fed them and made my first cup of coffee at 7:30. A. M. that is. Before the sun came into the windows. The sky was pearly grey, no colors, so probably no clouds.
Now, at 8:12, the sun is just coming over the treetops, and guess where it hits first, at this post autumnal equinox season? My computer screen!
It is tilted till I can't read the screen with my wonderful new glasses. I finally give up and use the laptop screen, which I can at least position lots of different directions as I play tag with sunbeams. What a lovely problem to have. I'm delighted, though slightly blind from the shine off of various surfaces.
Thanks for sunshine. The light by which we all live.
