Darkness into light...

Woke just after 3:30 am with terrible nightmares. A trend during the past two weeks. Not sure what’s bringing them on, but would welcome the grace of a good night’s sleep.

Cool today with overcast skies, but nothing to dampen the spirits. Got in some good revision work on one story, solid draft work on another. Meantime, found a few moments to read a remarkably good bit of short fiction by Daniel Alarcon, “The Provincials.”

Looking forward to mailing out some new drafts tomorrow. Maybe driving into the mountains to do some fishing if the weather cheers up. Tonight, dinner with family. (A rumor of steak!)
