Well here I am almost all alone at work. I work nights every other weekend – I am a personal assistant to a young man who needs observation all night. So while he is sleeping, or when he is sleeping I am all alone. I love it, to look out the windows at my sleepy little town, i make note of the teenagers riding their mopeds home and at which hour, the passing cars are they coming home or starting their day?
Sometimes I sit in the big entrance room surrounded by the floor to cieling windows sipping my tea in the dark. I sneak around (or pretend I am sneaking ) by the light of the moon. It’s winter now so I don’t open the door to the back yard to listen for the birds as they wake but I look forward to it. Spring is in the air, the mornings are crisp and the snow is finally melting. Ahh the darkness that comforts and soothes. I wonder what everyone is dreaming about. I wonder if they know I think about them, the dreamers and wish them a good night.
Soon the children will wake, the day for most will begin and I will take a walk home and jump into bed. It’s a little fun to put on pj’s and jump into bed with the sunshine streaming in through the windows.
I just wanted to share this moment, now I am going to turn the computer off, eat my melted cheese and sip my tea as I watch the sunrise. Good to be alive.
