I didn’t see much daylight the day after this night.
…that special kind of daylight one sees…after having been up all night: a different country, that daylight.
– Amaryllis Night And Day by Russell Hoban
I’m a night owl. (As opposed to a day owl?) The night is always more interesting than the day. The best things happen at night time. It’s easier to share your secrets when the sky is dark.Russell Hoban’s right, in the quote above – after you’ve stayed up all night, when the sky begins to get lighter, you see daylight differently. It’s a new universe of possibilities.A Different Daylight is a blog about the things that keep me up: reading, writing
, laughing at YouTube commenters
, getting irritated by irrelevant stuff
, all the small things that happen every day
… all filtered through the lens of a lifetime of staying up so late it gets early.
Updated on Mondays and Fridays (hopefully). I can’t guarantee that the occasional cat won’t slip in here and there – this is the internet, after all.
I live in London, England, and I have a day job. This means I have to sleep at night, most of the time. Sadface.
