Moon fire

This morning I woke up early.  This is normal for the first week or so after the clocks are mercilessly changed.  I wake up more than an hour earlier (which is more than an hour than my body clock tells me for some reason) and want to go to sleep a little later than my normal body clock time (which is just kind of weird). Changing the time regardless of the season, spring or fall, just messes with me.

 

Anyway…

 

This morning I woke up at 4:07am.  I mean just woke up, wide awake.  No reason.  Nothing troubling me or anything.  Just woke up.  The moon was shining in the 3 foot square, diamond shaped window.  The window’s bottom corner sits about ten feet from the floor and directly above my bed on the west side of Black Cat Cabin.  Almost full if not completely full, the moon was quite bright and at just the right angle to send silvery beams across my bedroom directly into the shale stone fireplace that makes up part of the opposite wall creating a spotlight effect in the space where the fire actually burns.

 

It was a poetic visual gift for an early riser.
