Woke up from a deep sleep, strange dreams. Dexy curled up close. Thirsty. And now me and the Panda dawg are sitting outside on the back patio. Well, actually she’s rooting around on my hill, looking for critters & sniffing about in the moist grass. I can hear her paws crunching in the dead & fallen leaves. It’s funny being awake at midnight. Usually I’m dead asleep by now, then awake much “later”, like 3am… Many of my neighbors are watching late night telly, likely just beginning to get sleepy. The flashing illuminated glow from their windows, baby crying next door, coyotes yipping from the nearby creek, cool breeze, far off voices amplified by the quietness of the hour, etc. All kind of nice nighttime noises and smells. Different from the early dawn noises I’m more accustomed to. It’s not cold outside; also rather surprising since I was feeling quite chilled earlier (though my internal thermostat may be cranked again & I’m just numb to the real temp?). Anyway, I could sit out here awhile if I didn’t have to be up for work in a few hours. I’ve missed the comfort & sense of safety having a dog brings. Good stuff. Life feels real in this moment. I’ll take it. G’night peeps. Sweet dreams. – Read on Path.
