Music before dawn

Mar 16, 2012

Oliver woke at midnight last night, just as I was beginning to doze — after another few hours of intense discussion about budgets and personal finances and more planning and discernment about the future direction of ScienceOnline — and I tried to get him back to sleep. Eventually, Erin took over, and I crashed into my pillow.

It’s been a wondrously warm week here in North Carolina, so we slept with the windows open. The cool air felt great.

Before sunrise, the dawn chorus started up, and though I was only half awake, I reveled in the music of the birds so content in the trees outside.
