I woke up because it was time, not because of my alarm. With one eye starting to focus while the other eye was still getting into gear I was in a state of mild disturbance …
This burst of light should not be there. I am looking in the direction of a sunrise and this wall should be dark – the rest of it was.
Well, a small gap between our curtains allowed a beam of golden light in and had bounced off a mirror and blistered this wall.
I could not resist.
The patch of light moved slowly and then the patch of curtain became my focus of attention.
So there you have it, yet again sun in our house when I least expected it. The nice thing is I noticed it. Another fleeting moment.
