Some days are just far too long. With 12 hours sleep behind me to catch up on the sleep lost on the flight the evening previous, I thought I would feel alright. Oh, I was wrong. I am tired and today has been long. I haven’t observed much because it has been hard to keep my eyes open. But my ears were open enough on my drive (windows down for fresh air to keep me more awake) to hear the birds out singing. Beautiful. Spring must be coming. At last.
