Arise, arise, open up your eyes.

Chris Shaw, the Adirdondack songwriter, has a song, "Walter," with the chorus:

Arise! Arise! Open up your eyes
It's an Adirondack morning

It is a good song. It is in my mind right now because the little man went to bed early last night, around 6:15, and woke after his usual 11 hours. We have been up since 5:00, it is 6:30 now and I have breakfasted and will walk the dog once there is enough light to see my way through the woods.

I suppose that, since the baby is the best thing this year, it is appropriate to open my birthday with a baby cooing and singing from the other room.

I just wish he had slept in a little.
