An emotional energy caught in my mind, an anxiety that pulled and tangled with my thinking; no doubt triggered by an irrational fright that woke me pre-dawn. I thought my worries had settled, that Iíd laughed off the dread and regained my equilibrium, but the calm was only superficial. All morning my attention seemed heightened, the light brighter, and this I put down to my disturbed sleep. I rely on routine; it soothes me. When later I didnít find my keys where I normally put them, I panicked and the buried sense of dread rose up and caught me unawares.
