if dreams were lightning & thunder was desire, this old house would have burnt down a long time ago.

alarm
snooze
alarm
stretch
touch dog
kiss husband
covers back
curtains back
sunshine, if lucky
stumble to bathroom
brush teeth
fix hair
fix hair again
wipe off mascara smudges
swipe lip balm
stumble back to bedroom
pull on jeans
find clean tshirt
pet dog again
kiss husband again
don't lay down...don't do it.
watch news for weather
make coffee
pull on shoes
put on coat
wrap scarf cozily
pack up purse, laptop
out the door, push back kitty
walk 5 blocks
say hi to woman on corner
wait for train
wait more
really? still waiting.
read a book
drink my coffee
watch other commuters
force eyes to stay open
eyes are closing, eyes...are...clo-
OPEN THOSE EYES
switch trains
hold on tight
ignore germs
get off train
climb stairs, so many stairs
catch breath
walk 4 blocks
stop for a muffin
chat about weather
yes, it IS windy!
take elevator up
come into work
wash hands

and then my day starts.




i need to start blogging daily.
right now i'm just working on forming the habit.

    that used to be my morning! (just trade the muffin for a scone, and take the subway from 4th street to union square)
