It’s been a weird few weeks, and I feel like I’m waiting for a shoe to fall. I thought it was Thing-Two going back to school, but that wasn’t it. It might have been the graphic novel, which now sits at a completed rough draft. (Yay! Just the pretty-fying left to do.) But the feeling is still hanging there. It could very well be that the patterns of sun have visibly shifted. Come to think of it, I did mention them earlier in the month, so that’s likely it. Restless. If you’ve read the TRUTH books, you’ll now know where Alissa gets her restlessness.
But in any case, I had a nice couple of days this week as I slow my schedule down from the crunching that it has been. Last night was a light sushi dinner and a trip to the office supply store. We went for Thing-Two and school supplies, but I browsed the shelves and picked up a new 2010 pocket calender. It’s my lifeline when I’m on tour, and it was nice thinking about the next one.
As for the dream? Well . . . It was nothing uncommon or special, but it hung with me all day, making me feel watched over and loved. I’d go with it and just enjoy it except that those friggin owls are back, clacking at me. If I see a Luna moth, I’m going to squish it. –Kim
