Sticky Note

This sticky note sat for­got­ten on my desk­top for eight days.

While hav­ing a one-sided argu­ment with my moth­er (she talked as I lis­tened and nod­ded) this after­noon about my lousy finan­cial man­age­ment, I came across this sticky note. Sit­ting for­got­ten on my desk­top, it is tagged Mon­day Sep­tem­ber 20, 2010, 3:05:02 PM Lebanon Time, but I don’t remem­ber writ­ing it.

There is a place of dis­ori­en­ta­tion I vis­it in a reoc­cur­ring dream. After sev­er­al turns down a nar­row cor­ri­dor, I come to a stop, mid­way up a stair­case. Direct­ly ahead, there is a plas­ter-like wall that occu­pies my entire field of vision, as the ceil­ing and walls on either side fall away. I can nei­ther touch the wall nor gauge its dis­tance from me. As I float in a realm of thin dark­ness, I remem­ber to look for a door or win­dow in the half-light, but am imme­di­ate­ly aware that this place has noth­ing to do with such things. I sense a space of infi­nite depth all around me.
