My roommate sleeps with his light on most nights. I’m starting to wonder if he just falls asleep reading every night, or if he’s afraid of the dark.

My brother phoned – the older one, Mike. He’s in town for a few days, so we’re going to try and get together. I haven’t seen him since February of 99, I don’t think. I wonder how our conversation will go…

      I get afraid of silence sometimes. I have to have the fan running, or my computer going, or a radio playing. I’m fine with the darkness unless it’s too quiet… unless I’m sleeping outside. I can deal with that just fine.
