What am I feeling? I don't know. The elation of knowing I wouldn't need to go into the office today or tomorrow, the cosy feeling of shacking up away from the world, turned in a moment, and I didn't even notice it was happening. It was ridiculous in its suddenness, the way the darkness outside, the storm clouds hovering over the city seemed to seep inside me, and I can't even figure out why. Maybe I miss my children being here in my house, where I can keep them safe. Or maybe I just feel cranky, certainly the word of the week.
This is how the streets look right now. The city is silent, except for the rustling of trees, and at the shoreline, the sound of the tides, rising.
