Base writing

So concludes 2010 for Just Enough Craig. I've decided to take a break from blogging for the entirety of January to refill my imagination and spirit and will resume in February. In the meantime, I leave you with my memory of a dream from two nights ago.

In it, I was running along a street and passed a parked sedan with Texas license plates. Nearby were a man and a woman, and to them I hailed with with a “Yea, Texas!” They then asked me if I was from Texas, and I responded that I was. I then found myself, via that blurry transition that happens only in dreams, no longer running but stopped and in conversation with the two.

“Where in Texas are you from?” they asked.

“Houston,” I said.

“Oh, we're from Katy. Is that anywhere near Houston?”

“Uh, yeah. It's probably going to be annexed by Houston any year now,” I said sarcastically.

“Oh. Well, we're not really from Katy. But we had you going, huh?”

Indeed they did. Strange how the mind cons itself even in its own dreamworlds.

It is Feb. 3rd and no new posts.
92% of JEC and slipping.
2011 is not starting out as hoped.
