Illinois

Sunday’s Dilettante.

Do you ever get the feeling that something is lurking in your mental periphery, just waiting for its chance to jump into the spotlight in the middle of your brain to announce itself? I feel like that. I have a sense of nervousness, the jitters, something, and I think it’s more than coffee. I feel like something is on the horizon. Something big. And I don’t get the feeling it’s a bad big thing – I think it is positive. God, I hope so.

I had a dream last night that I was about to leave town to go to Urbana-Champaign. Yes, Illinois. The only thing I know about that area is that University of Illinois is there. It wasn’t clear to me in the dream whether I was moving out there or visiting, but I did get the sense that I’d be gone for a while. In the same dream, someone was trying to put a donut on my naked right breast, so perhaps I shouldn’t try analyzing it too closely.
