I was going to show off a new print and post cute pictures of the bunnies today but I had a bad experience last night and I can only focus on negative thoughts. I am full of dread and even when I am doing something pleasant (like sharing a coffee with Julie this morning) part of my brain is still obsessing and being morbid.
A little after midnight I was sound asleep and woke up because I heard a woman wailing and screaming. She sounded desperate and was saying, "help! Somebody help me!" over and over again. I ran out to hear what direction her screaming was coming from but couldn't really tell. I heard a couple footsteps, three syllables of a low voice, another cry and then the most terrifying sudden silence.
It was quiet by the time the police arrived. They parked in their cruiser on the street and listened for THREE WHOLE MINUTES and drove away and told me to call if I heard anything else.
I stayed up listening as hard as I could and but nothing else happened. Well, actually a skunk walked down the street, a can collector rattled around for awhile, I caught a glimpse of a bat under a streetlight and a cat rubbed it's chin on the bumper of a truck for eight minutes.
I can't get anything done today.
