    Jef, I’ve always admired your work, but this one is a gem! Right up there with “Noise almost always precedes illumination” (Caufield’s method of remembering Edison invented the phonograph before the lightbulb). Keep it up!

    Mr. Burke sheds a little light on the subject (at hand).

    Sometimes our best wisdom comes from (or is ignited by) the wisdom of others.

    He talked me into hiding my light under a bucket.

    Eating carrots really does help night vision; but it also turns your skin orange.

    If you look at the specs for some of the bike lights and headlamps, they’re brighter than automobile high beams. One would have to be a complete idiot to be on foot or on a bike and use a lamp that is so bright that it can blind the operator of an oncoming, two-ton hunk of metal. (Not to mention completely self-absorbed to blind other runners and/or cyclists.)

    hubby has decent night vision. He is always telling me to turn off the light and let my eyes adjust. Often he’s right. It only takes a moment and then moon light is fine.

    But it is easier to be seen if you have a lamp.

    Ah, but Burke, it’s even better to be both Bright and Well Adjusted at the same time.

    At 5 in the morning, the light level my eyes are accustomed to is whatever manages to seep thru my eyelids.

    A decent enough light to be seen by oncoming traffic is all that’s needed.

    Hah! This was wonderful!

    Like Mr. Burke… I too prefer to let my eyes acclimate to the available light levels. And, like many say here, the forehead lights are often extreme. I have learned when running, when I see one of those beacons upon someone’s forehead way in the distance, to avoid looking at the individual as I get closer…. just because the intensity is pretty damn strong.

    I think I shall try to keep the existential phrase from Burke in my mind for some future use.

    The Cyclops 1200 doesn’t let you see the crack in the sidewalk you’re about to trip over.
