“What hath night to do with sleep?”
~ John Milton, Paradise Lost
Apparently very little, Mr. Milton.
I wake before 3am. this morning–for sure this time. I finish my book, and toss and turn for a while until Gerry rouses to take Maya outside around four.
He returns to bed, and to sleep. I give up, and try to start a new book but can’t get into it so grab my iPad and catch up on what’s happened since I went to bed such a short time ago.
At five I turn the coffee maker on.
It’s going to be a long day.
