An Unsettling Feeling...!
Do you ever have an unsettling feeling?
You know the type I mean. It's not quite an uneasy feeling, but at the same time it just isn't comfortable. It's a lot like the feeling you get in the back of your mind when you start to wonder what you forgot when on a trip.
It's the kind of feeling you get when you know you are alone, but you keep glancing behind you just in case. You just can't help it. That feeling that is somewhere between gloom and comfort. A feeling of restlessness.
I'm wondering if it all the negativity of the city that I'm somehow being affected by. Sort of like waiting for the other shoe to drop. I somehow get a vague feeling that I should be doing something, and yet I can't think of what I should be doing.
Maybe I just have rabbit in my blood. Maybe the wanderlust is catching up with me. Maybe it's nothing more than the weather...who knows?
Whatever it is, it's a nagging feeling that just won't go away. All of last night and so far most of today, this feeling is hanging on, is being very persistent. If I have learned anything at all in all my years, it's to pay attention to my feelings, especially if they continue to linger more than just a little while.
I'm double checking everything I can think of and making sure that the animals are within close proximity, but they too seem to be picking up on something. For some reason, the cats are sticking close and wanting to be petted a little more than usual, even my Mother's cat. I thought that it was because Mom was out of town for a visit at first, but for the past two days, she has been very close and even tolerant of the two roomies when they are on the patio at the same time.
Something is coming this way. I'm not sure what it is, I don't know if it's anything major or not...just that I should be ready just in case.
Maybe it's silly and just in my head. Maybe I just need a strong drink. Maybe I need another cup of coffee. Or maybe, just maybe...I should be getting ready to hunker down for a bit. Whatever the reason, I'll be spending a lot more time inside today, paying close attention to the news on the web.
I guess maybe it's like the old saying goes..."This to shall pass". C'mon, friend! Let's grab another cup of coffee and sit for a bit while listening for the warning bells!
