Yesterday we didn’t get our usual late afternoon ten_minute storm but very early this morning, at around 3:00 a.m. we got quite a violent storm. Even now it is still drizzling. Billy came over to see my father yesterday. I’m not absolutely positive but as far as I know he only stuck around for a while. I know they most certainly spent quite a lot of time in the yard. My parents got a few telephone calls yesterday & last night. For some disgusting reason, the phone is constantly ringing anyway but these calls were from kinfolk & friends. The majority times the calls are just dead air or salesmen. There’s really no difference anyway between dead air & salesmen. Immediately before I woke up I had a very brief but very vivid dream. I dreamed I drove through a red light even though there was a police car right behind me. He didn’t come after me right away. He didn’t even bother to flash his lights & sirens. I stopped at the next red light, quite conscientiously. That’s when he pulled up next to me & yet another police car pulled up in front of me. Immediately after that, I woke up. Typically, I made sure I put in my usual amount of time yesterday practicing my guitar. My specialties lately are scales & Beatle oldies, of course. I also spent a while reading that book about St. Teresa’s “Interior Castle”. This morning when I was lectoring, as usual, at Mass at O.L. Sorrows, the lights struck me as so overwhelming I literally couldn’t even see the words in the lectionary right in front of me. I most certainly hope that was just an isolated incident.
