Still life with wife

[Click for a larger view.]

It is widely reported that the earlier darkness that comes with the return to Standard Time better prepares us for sleep. Thus this drawing.

When we tried watching She Played with Fire (dir. Sidney Gilliat, 1957) last week, we both checked out early in the proceedings. I woke up first and made a sketch the next morning to show Elaine how she looked. When we tried the movie a second time, it was much, much better.

[I inked over the lines of a pencil drawing, fixed up the chair, and removed one extraneous line. Shared here with permission.]

That means something coming from a real artist. Thank you, Fresca.

I get the times mixed up, but anyways the scientists say it is far better to have light in the morning, even though so many people want to have a later daylight. because morning light sets your bio clock. They make a good case for it being really important.

Yep. I think Standard Time is the better choice, though darkness in the late afternoon kills my soul.
