TIC TOC tic toc…

TIC TOC tic toc… You can hear that old clock late at night when there is no other sounds and time seems to slow way down and stop… Dropping into REM then DREAM only to be interrupted by a faint sound… tic toc … louder now…TIC TOC… as it brings you back to waking world as time passes…

Opening your eyes slowly as the fog slowly melts away as you see the ceiling come into focus. Then the rest of the room become clearer and clearer.. And your eyes stop at the window where a single ray of sunshine finds its way through a crack in the curtains and bouncing off the wall on the opposite side of th room. Displaying a pyramid of colors. Brite yellow, red, blue, and violet..

Lying there lost in your thoughts for the moment..tic toc… tic toc… tic toc…TIC TOC…TIC TOC…You snap back to reality. Jumping out of bed and into the bathroom to shit, shower, and shave. Quickly dress ….grab your backpack and ice coffee…  Reaching out for the front door handle you pull back and take a deeeep breath. Enjoying that last moment of quiet…

Okay ready to go. The front door opens allowing the outside world to rush in. Road noise blasts in…horns honking.. sirens blasting…car engines roaring…brakes screeching.. The next door neighbor is screaming  at his wife or kids or both.  The sun is bright and high in the sky and it’s beginning to heat up. Climbing on the scooter, start it up , and off to workhe goes.nick
