I awoke grumpy and wondered down to my office, coffee in hand (Mocha Harar, double shot but made long to try to get the chill off me). I sat down, went through my spam, er, mail and chanced to look up. The time – 0717 – sunrise in these parts. From the Eastern window of my office (the Western one just overlooks the back yard and the dogs), I can look North East (my chair facing North-ish) and see the Hummock Ranges. The sun creeps up in a band of orange, over the deep purple of the hills and ‘neath the purples and blues of the dawn sky.
Now it is passed, my coffee is cool enough to drink, so I can go back to being grumpy again.
