Later and Later

For the last couple of days my sleep schedule has shown signs that it might be about to go through more slippage. It's been difficult for me to get to sleep with so much daylight seeping in, and it's been difficult to wake after seven or eight hours. Each time this happens, adjustment becomes more difficult, too. I might have to go through the extreme re-setting of my internal clock, which would mean staying awake for about 36 hours straight. I used to be able to do that easily enough, but I doubt that I have that sort of energy anymore. It's been years and years since I've had to do it. I'll probably just put up with the slippage until it gets to the point where I'm waking up at sunset. It's easier to make the extreme adjustment from there.

At least I'm getting to see some sunrises these days. This morning, there are lots of little cumulous clouds in the east, being all bright and cheerful in the early light, and the pine trees are glowing green and gold as the birds sing. It's quite chilly, though, and this will be another five blanket day.

Things are pleasant enough here, but there is bad news from other places, especially for our fellow primates. (Link snagged from scottobear.) I suppose that the up side of the great apes becoming extinct is that, once we inevitably follow them, it increases the likelihood of some non-primate species becoming dominant on the planet. I'm rooting for the felines, myself. I sort of like the idea of the descendants of kitties colonizing space a million years hence.
