February 25, 2002
It is light enough now in the morning that I awake suddenly, convinced I've significantly overslept. Adjusting to this changed reality seems doubtful, but I've done just that for the past three years.
Fifteen years ago it was somehow exciting got leave work when it was dark outside. The glitter of the city was enticing. Now I feel cheated if it isn't light out when I leave the building. Is it a natural part of getting older, or because the city has lost its exotic appeal or a result of the long commute which so clearly divides night and day?
