I’m feeling blue, alas.

I woke up from the nicest dream, something that isn’t true in waking life, so I woke up to this awful feeling of loss and disappointment. Which seems to be clinging to me.

THEN, I remembered I have a rather significant birthday coming up.

Sigh. I could list all the things I have to be happy about, but sometimes you can’t deny the things that suck, and there’s nothing like a really nice dream to cut through the denial about the suckiness.
