No sleep this morning until after five, so no sleep until after the sun was up. This time of year, at this latitude, the sky starts to brighten before four a.m. The first start singing to my insomnia, and I imagine them all in the jaws of hungry cats.

About nine-thirty, though, I woke to some very good news, which I shall share when I am able.

Today, we're heading south for more book-related research. It's sort of like location scouting, really.

Last night, I lay on the floor of the front parlor and watched Mars as it made the transit from one side of a gap in the curtains to the other side of the gap in the curtains. It was bright and pink and beautiful.

Later,
Aunt Beast

May your journey be free of touristy madness.

Godspeed?
Once when I was a kid, I was hang with my friends. We found a telescope tucked away in a garage. We took it out that night, and the first, and only thing we say was Saturn. Very first look, and there was Saturn, rings And all. Today, I don't believe it actually happened.
When my wife was a kid, her home was very chaotic. She would find a place to hide where she felt safe. She would often get in the dryer with a blanket, and hide. Once she was found in there, and they turned it on to punish her. She found she could go out a window, and sit on the roof of her house. On a especially bad day, she crawled out the window that night. In her kid pajamas, she took a blanket, with some milk, and Oreo cookies. She said the night was peaceful, and beautiful. As she sat there, an eclipse of the moon started. She sat there eating her cookies, as the lunar eclipse came and went. She woke in the morning wrapped in her blanket. She knew then she could make it, she could escape from her terrible home life. It was until much later she learned that lunar eclipse don't happen every night. My wife believe I saw Saturn with one look, I don't, but she does.
