Contentedness.
Current Mood: tired tired
Quick, get it on 'paper' before it gets away.

I was in a little village on the coast. Andy (kid I knew from grade school. wonder why brain picked him) was raising his daughter(s)? by living in a Fort Wayne mixed with Boston type little village on the coast by fishing. The other odd thing was that you could make suborbital hops (beats greyhound!) from one place to another in my dreams.

The thing that makes this memorable is how at peace I felt when I was on the coastline, in the 'backyard', drowning in the sound of the water. My mother (via videophone and looking pretty good for a future of orbital jumping): "The water is always peaceful. Of course you want to stay now. But what about when the peace drives you mad?"

You sure sleep at odd times.

When I work from midnight to noon, yeah. couple with general apparent lack of need to sleep more than 5 hours while at home...

that does sound like something your mother would say. I don't know that peace would drive you mad, but I suppose it's possible. You've had so little of it in your life that I'm not sure you'd be able to know how you'd handle long term peacefullness.

I would actually mayhaps say that I have too much.

As for my mother, well, it'd be uncharacteristic for her to say something like that, honestly. At least phrased thusly.

in the words of Miss Emily Litella, nevermind then :)
