Crawling out of bed before sunrise to take our dog out is not part of my usual routine, but sometimes, it’s necessary.
That necessity called the other morning, and I stood on our front yard, mostly asleep, in the quiet dark.
While Louie rustled through leaves, I looked up, and saw no clouds, all silver lining.
The stars were brilliant, pinprick diamonds dotting the sky. A white sliver of moon hung like a crooked smile.
Thanks, Lou. I wouldn’t have seen that if it weren’t for you.
