I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

The last few days..

So she rang me at 11.30.wanna come and have some sushi? Well how could I refuse that.
I showered quickly and she picked me up 15 mins later.It wasnt a long drive and I almost know my way around here now,tho I still dont want to drive.
We were greeted by our usual server and she loves seeing us cos Trish tips BIG! shes worked in the business herself and knows that a $20 tip means a little something extra in the food basket for the kids...lunch was delicious as usual.
Then it was off to Dunkin Donuts where all our friends hang out..bikes lining the road at any time of the day or late into the night.
I feel safe here.If I happen to stay and chat til late at night I get taken home even if I walked over..sometimes one of the guys walk me home.My friends here have been great and I will treasure them forever.
I have 15 days left til I fly home to NZ..Im longing for my little cottage in the country and to be with my family.My heart aches for them but at the same time I feel so happy that I now have dual citizenship and can come back whenever I want to.I feel as if I belong in both places.
Tomorrow is friday and I have to remember to do some shopping in the township.I still have some presents to buy to take home.Im happy :)

Ive been having the most bizarre dreams..every night.
Last night I dreamt I was walking around the house (not mine) picking up laundry.
There was so much of it scattered everywhere and each time I filled the basket I found more...
Last weekend I dreamed Id lost a baby (not mine) and it still had its umbilical cord attached.Now I had put this baby down somewhere and I couldnt find it.I searched and searched and I actually woke up crying for it was nowhere to be found.
During the week I dreamed I had lost all my money (yes mine).It was in a big envelope and there were thousands of 100 dollar notes and Id hidden from burglars but I couldnt find it.
The night before last I was in a huge paddock (field) with millions of flowers all over it and I was looking for just one flower..an iris.There were none.

I have no idea what all this searching and losing things means but I would be very happy if anyone has any suggestions..
They dont stress me out but it does make me wonder,why am I looking and losing?
