I lay down my head to sleep…
Big, beautiful sleep.
The nighttime sounds of insects and cars driving down the street waft through the open windows.
I think I’m asleep within moments.
As I stretch awake, I consider dreams that are already fading.
The car crash, the stretcher, the jewelry on the table beside the bed.
My heart races as I sit upright.
Dreams. Just dreams.
The sunlight streams between the blinds.
All is well.
Damn, I slept hard!
