The April showers have been delayed until later in February. Today turned out even brighter than yesterday. The rain will probably not arrive until Wednesday. In the meantime, I can work on my tan. I'm seeing a lot more daylight these days, and not just because the days are longer. It's because, even with the assistance of large amounts of caffeine, I continue to be unable to keep my eyes open at night. I manage to wake long enough to do the bare essential tasks, but it's clear that my nocturnalism is in severe decline. As night has been my prime computer time, my presence on teh Internets is in decline too. The phone line needs to be kept clear by day, so unless I can move beyond dial-up I'm going to have a lot less of a virtual life and (alas) more of a real one. And a real one with little night in it, at that. Disaster!

I'm at least going to set aside a few minutes to watch the waxing moon this evening, though. It will be a crescent slightly askew, a few degrees above Venus. It's going to be an enjoyable sight, but the best part is that it will be accompanied by the scent of spurge laurel. I got a faint whiff of it this afternoon, and it's always stronger after sunset. Spurge laurel, or Daphne, is one of my favorite scents. It is never around for long, and whatever carries the fragrance is apt to get washed away in the coming rain, so this may be my only chance to smell it this year. I'll stay awake as long s I can.

    Once again I've forgotten when I went to sleep, but I woke up around two o'clock in the morning. Tuesday was quite warm, and I kept the windows open…

  • Reset Seventeen, Day Fourteen

    I don't recall the exact hour, but it was well before midnight Monday, when I felt the sudden need for a nap. I expected it to last until perhaps two…
