Night for Day

I could use about 8 more hours of night.

The sweet spot is about 2am to 5am. Traffic dies down, streets are emptier, people are sleeping. Most people are sleeping. That's when this city achieves a level of darkness and quiet that allows me to think clearer. That allows me to write with fewer distractions.

You'd think I could do more if I moved to some place like Alaska or something but I need the days here. It's not that I don't get anything from the daylight hours. I just wish, sometimes, the daylight hours were reduced significantly.
