Light

You gaze at the time yet again. It’s well beyond midnight and you can’t believe you’re not at all sleepy. You smile at the idea that no one will get it when you try to explain that you’ve literally watched the sun not descend. The images you snap to support your story are weak proofs and makes you smile yet again. Let the light of the Arctic amaze and energize you. Take the opportunity to ignore conventions as time and hours and get caught in the moment. We promise you that you’ll get your rest in due time. But now it’s not necessary, not with a hundred days without night.
