I woke up suddenly to the sound of an alarm, face blushed and burning, breathing halted momentarily while my body insisted it was still in the dream and my mind raced to figure out what was really going on.
Leaning up on one elbow I took stock of the dim morning light filtering in through the slightly parted curtains and rolled slowly back into my pillow. To close my eyes. To cling to those last moments of sleep. To pull that dream into my conscious mind and remember it for another moment.
2010 started out on a very pleasant note.
