Ex-Sanity (Insomnia, Installment 13)

It was, what – twenty minutes ago? ten? probably less than that – she was desperately missing her ex-boss, her ex-home, her whole ex-life.

But everything is relative. Now she would welcome even the recent boss, home, and life she had rapidly grown to despise.

She looks around, disbelieving.

All of it.

I like trees, dreaming, magic, books, paper, floating, dreaming, rhinos, rocks, stargazing, wine, dragonflies, trains, and silence to hear the world breathe.

  1. Reading this I can’t help but wonder what it would be like, to suddenly have everything both good and bad just – gone. Mind numbing most definitely. Excellent writing, so intriguing!
