Trivia note: November 25 is the ten year anniversary of "Sleeping in Light" airing. Time flies...
I remember that so very well, because the next day was Thanksgiving Day. We watched the episode that Wed. night, and then inexplicably the next morning ... I woke up before the sun had come up. Hadn't planned it. Didn't set the alarm for it. In truth, I'd rather have slept in.
Instead, I got up, fixed a cup of tea, and went out onto the deck to watch the sun come up.
