my morning began at four o'clock. i read for an hour after waking from a very strange dream. i am almost one hundred pages from the end of my book. then i fell back to sleep, dreamt even stranger dreams and gave up on the entire endeavor at 8am.
i roused from my nest and packed my bag. fed the cats, and watered the plants. i still have to make watermelon feta salad, pay my roommate $5 for water this month, buy three nine volt batteries, buy my ticket to nyc and go to the pool for the afternoon. i figure i can finish my book at the pool, and paint my toes when i get home from work. i have a duck egg for breakfast tomorrow morning and one more peach.
then tomorrow i get on a bus before the sun rises and head north. home. to vermont on a vacation.
