    Wow! There’s only two more Saturdays in August and a realization just dawned on me.

    You will not find me conscious at midnight, sitting outside on a porch on a warm summer night to contemplate life after all the lights have been snuffed out except for the moon.
    I like sleep. I love sleep.
