Of the state of my undereyes, not getting involved, and wondering if I’ll ever give myself a break.

  1. A red patch under one eye reveals more about the state of my mind that I’m comfortable with. Too little rest, too many thoughts.
  2. The sound of silence.
  3. Seven little speeches, each one a sliver of the story, a piece of our hearts.
  4. The routine of the work is soothing. Familiar and orderly, even when it’s busy. The best parts of customer service.
  5. He has my best interest at heart.
  6. Atmospheric tension that has nothing to do with me yet laps at my feet tempting me to wade in. Not today, Satan.
  7. Don’t let me get used to this. Let me always be grateful.
  8. I’m both thrilled at the early arrival and panicked about the now-overlap of all I’d planned to do beforehand. Add it to the muddy pool of emotions and let it go.
  9. Another “late night” for this 5am-er. I’ll get a handle on this someday.
  10. I did my best. Is it enough?
