365 Project - Day 150 - "Early Morning (Can't Sleep)"

May 30, 2015 - "Early Morning (Can't Sleep)"

I can't sleep...

Which explains why I'm standing in my driveway at 5:30 in the morning on a Saturday taking photos of plants in the front yard garden.

Too much on my mind... and it's racing at 100mph.

I could really go for two eggs over-medium with a side of well-done potatoes and some toast with butter.

Diner food. Yeah... that's it. I want "diner food".

Or maybe I just want to "be" in a diner right now... alone... with a cup of coffee and my thoughts - the way it used to be... way back when.

The clatter of plates being stacked by a busboy... the rustling of newspapers by a patron at the counter... the sound of coffee cups being stirred, while "Against the Wind" plays softly on the table side jukebox.

That's what I want.

The anonymity of being alone in some diner somewhere... very early in the morning. Just me and my thoughts... and maybe a side of very-crisp bacon.

But instead I'm standing in the driveway at five-freakin'-thirty on a Saturday... done taking pictures, now looking up at the sky instead... wondering if you're up there looking back at me.

And there it is...

Now I'm crying.
