Woke up with moments to spare.....
In my hubris, I forgot the earth rotates. The image is blurry..... but the event is fascinating.
As I stood away from the house, watching the moon move into shadow, trading glaring white for blood red, I realized how utterly alone I was. Cut off from humanity in a cold and merciless world, where creatures roamed the night, feeding without pity on anything.... or anyone.... who dared appear weak.
In this dark world, surrounded by shadows that moved and prowled with menace, I heard the most frightening sound imaginable..... The 'click' of the front door locking as a vagrant breeze blew it shut.
Locked out of the house... again. Son of a b!t$&!
I am such an idiot.
