5 a.m.

Wide awake at 5 a.m. today, and having given up on sleep at 5.20, I noticed the full moon pouring light through the west windows of my study at home.

Lovely, this gift of moonlight on a tired morning.

I am so mindful of friends and colleagues and former students who are living with Sandy, miles to my east, right now.  God protect them.


An update at 7:15 a.m. —

I’ve finished breakfast of apple crepes and some turkey bacon, and strong black coffee.

And a pork roast (with rub of rosemary, paprika, salt, garlic, and oregano) is resting in the slow cooker on top of rough-cut cubes of Russet potato and yams and yellow onion, all drizzled with chicken broth.  I expect a pretty fine dinner this evening, and enough leftovers to see me through the week!
