I've lived in Washington since June 2003. When I arrived, I was a bit shocked to find in my new home, without any curtains or blinds, that it was 10 p.m. and still quite bright outside.

Still, I've been mostly shielded from the drastic swings of sunlight, caused by our northerly location and perpetually cloudy weather, due to my full-time telecommuting. The worst part about it for me has always been for stargazing: I either have to brave the elements in the winter, or stay up past midnight, to catch some stars. The Pacific Northwest is terrible for stargazing.

But now I am commuting four days a week to Seattle, and this morning, for the first time, the sun was out as I was waiting for the bus. A month or so ago it started being sunny on the way home. But in most of my six-plus months on this route, it's been dark when I leave and dark when I get home. This being a particularly unsunny winter and spring hasn't helped, since it's mostly been dark and wet even throughout the days.

I'm going to listen to some Beatles now.

Doo doo doo doo. It's alright.
