The wind has finally died down a little, after bringing down bricks and trees throughout the neighbourhood. I lost power three times, which made the whole day feel fragmented and strange.
I’ve been edgy lately and full of dreams I can’t shake. There’s a lot I haven’t written about, though I’m not exactly sure why. Have I become suddenly guarded? Or just dull?
In one of the dreams, I am walking up my street with someone I know but not well. It is spring, or maybe fall, and we are talking about a band we both like. As we walk, he takes my arm as though we are lovers. I notice this and think, “How brave of him!” And then the dream ends.
I wonder what the weather will be like tomorrow?
