No waking at five.

OR, I did, but it was from Alice waking me saying that smoke alarm in Jackie’s room was once more chirping. To find I did, it was an actual bird, atop the neighbor’s roof. In fact chirping. I thought of coming down here but the Story and my character and thoughts ordered me back to sleep so I’m here a the island, 6:44, waiting for the coffee to cue and be about my day. No running after taking J to school.. need to get batteries and my knee is in a bit of discomfort, I wouldn’t say pain. But certainly I feel the run from last night and the presence in my knee.

Jack downstairs awake and I wish this morning to be drastically ahead of any schedule I claim to have.. so writing later…..
