When the full moon shines into our bedroom window, my husband often says, “Why did you leave the outside light on?” And later, as he snores away, I am up pacing through the house in the dark, unable to sleep.
Finally, research supports my experience: the full moon messes with our sleep patterns, and maybe even those of animals. One night as I was walking through our darkened home, I gazed through the huge living room window to see a deer gazing back at me.
“You, too?” I asked.
