a lot of things have happened this morning.
the sun and the construction workers both get up at the same time: early.
and neither one of them enjoy having anyone else asleep while THEY are awake. so they get me out of bed with their brightness and their noise. sounds of the city. coupled with the promise of a new day. i feel very conflicted about this sort of wake up call.
a love/hate relationship indeed.
nick and i also had a very melodramatic morning. it began last night, really. with what i would not exactly call a fight, but a *discussion*. a sharing of concerns, if you will. this morning it all came to a head as i awoke to a middle-of-the-night text from him. the text was about as lucid as you would expect it to be, having been written in the middle of the night. and i reacted to it about as lucidly as you would expect me to, having been just awoken by the incessant beeping of a bulldozer in reverse.
many texts were exchanged. many melodramatic sentiments expressed. i had to text-a-friend to make sure i wasn't crazy.
(she assured me i wasn't. as friends do.)
and after all that, a happy ending.
nick is coming to see me and new york city tomorrow.
we're both very excited to see him.
