Last nights sleep was yet another dream session cut short.
I woke up between 3AM and 4, I’m guessing, as I have stopped looking at the clock.
Soon will be sleepless nights.
This morning though, I see the light. I see the sun rise, peek above the mountains and place a mirror in the water for the precious palm trees.
I decide to take off on a morning hike. On the way there, I see dozens of flashing blue lights on the opposite side of the road. Approaching closer, I see yellow tape tied around the trunks of some of the precious palm trees. The tape formed a circle; separating death from life.
I felt most alive on that hike that day, sleepy as ever, but happy to be alive.
