Did you know there’s more than one kind of dawn? It’s true. There’s astronomical dawn, and nautical dawn, and civil dawn.
I only know this because I live in New England, where dawn comes, I’m not kidding you, at 4:30 a.m. at the height of summer. So bright, so early.
It’s ok, though. Winter is so long, and so dark, and I spend most of it dreaming of days like this, full of sunlight and flowers and warm. Even if the days start at 4:30.
