Notes from the Waxhaws

Displaced

leave a comment »

Time travel makes me tired. Especially, travelling into the future. Suddenly…I’m temporally displaced. I know that it’s only an hour…but it takes awhile for the present to catch up…for things to return to normal…to get back in focus. Even the birds have an eerie sound to them tonight…in the grey twilight…as if their plaintive chirping is echoing into this future from the slightly out-of-reach present…struggling to catch up…to get back in sync.

A ten hour day at work probably didn’t help either. Driving home today…the cherry, dogwood, and pear blossoms…everywhere on this warm, glowing, hazy Spring evening. A fairy tale landscape…but missing the happy ending. Suffused with sadness for some vague reason.

I need to go to bed early tonight. Maybe during the night…while I’m asleep…the present will catch up with the future…and then the morning will arrive on time…and everything will seem clear once more.
