I’ve always loved Sinatra’s album, “In the Wee Small Hours” – particularly the title track. Likewise, in the Babylon5 universe, when the “Hour of the Wolf” was mentioned, the hour between midnight and dawn when you can’t sleep because you’re worried about something. And Nighthawks, from either Hopper or Waits. There’s something about the late night, about the time of last call, that draws me in. Every year, I wake up at that time, the anniversary of my birth. I’m not necessarily worried, but it is one of my favorite times, when the world around you is asleep and you’re not.
