I wake up to go to the bathroom but I'm half dreaming. I can barely open my eyes. I step into the bathroom and discover an unfamiliar design – the bathtub is on the other side of the room. I'm half blind and use my hands to guide me inside. There's a mirror. I try to look at myself in the mirror cause I'm curious what I look like in the dream world. It's difficult to get my head in front of the mirror to see my face – it's like the dream doesn't want to reveal what I look like. But I force my way around. I bulge my eyes open so there's no interference. There I am. I look pretty normal but a bit younger. I've got to take leak now. I struggle to aim for the toilet and end up spewing all over the tub. It burns a little.

Waking up at noon.
Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Strawberries, and Kefir. Guayusa Tea.
Research. Cleaning. Ana called out of work – she's sickly and not up to being a bright ball of sunshine to all the Trader Joe's customers.
Grilled PB&J. Olive Oil Potato Chips. Honey Green Tea.
This is the last we'll see of Stacy. Kevin, I know, is sad about it. They brewed up a close-knit romantic relationship over the summer that couldn't be broken. He says he'll take a trip to Russia to visit her next year.
Teaching lessons at Music Makers.
At the Lynnhaven Middle School courts shooting the basketball around. These two pre-teen boys ask if I wanna play them 2 on 1. I critique their game play – one of them I can tell went to basketball camps this summer cause he's got some moves. It's funny how I can't seem to get away from giving guidance in music and even in basketball.
Back home. The couch surfers brought home two large Pizzas from Whole Foods. We all share Salad bowls and slices, and gulp down beers.
At the theater room at the music space meeting with Drew, Jimmy, and John of DEJA. We listen closely to four Electric Light Orchestra songs and map out the structure of each. We just recently got hired by somebody who wants to put together a tribute band and pay us good money to perform concerts around the country on and off.
Back home. Taking care of Ana – making her herbal tea and making her take Acetaminophen pain relievers to help her sleep cause she's got to get up at the butt crack of dawn for work.
Sleep 4 a.m.
