this morning, while the rain bathed a parched oakland in moisture, and before the sun was even attempting to show herself, i woke from a nightmare. sometimes i’m able to ignore them. change the channel in my head so that i dream of something else without actually waking up.

but not this morning.

i don’t recall what it was about. don’t want to. but it was enough to rouse me from my bed looking for some way to spend my time.

and so i finally managed to do what i have not done since before egypt…i worked out.

with such a busy day i found myself nodding off at around 7pm. i had to hold it together because sleeping before nine means waking up before 7am yet again.

and so i ready myself for sleep tonight. hoping against hope that whatever visited my dreams last night stays away.
