All this daylight at this time of the year, just two days past the summer solstice here in the northern hemisphere. In fact, we’re still at the point where the sun won’t rise later or set earlier for a day or two.
So a few days ago I awoke with a jolt.
No, it was not because Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle was stirring because the sun had come up around 5 a.m., and she wanted to go out in the backyard of the Little B here in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood to take care of her morning needs.
No, this 2 a.m. state of wake-up-endness came from a full moon, shining straight into the bedroom window and into my eyes.
Unable to fall straight back to sleep, I grabbed my iPad Air off the bedside table and snapped this photo, taken while still prone, to prove my point.
Has the moonlight ever caused you to awaken with a jolt? How early does the sun get you up around the solstice? Are you a morning person or a night person?
