Thoughts tumbling around in my head, jostling each other for space ... to-do lists, plans for the year, worries, hopes, dreams ...
The darkness is complete (no street lights here) ... heavy, salty and warm.
The sound of the ocean pulses through me ... relentless, persistent ... but calming.
And the longing to live by the sea, to have my insomnia soothed by the waves is with me again.
Maybe one day.
