Climbing Down June 7, 2006
I had the strangest dream about me and S last night. We were in Washington, D.C., walking down a dark alley, and we came to a place in the alley where the pavement fell off into a deep ravine. There was a tree in the ravine, and its top was level with the alley. S and I stepped into the treetop and climbed down the tree. At first I thought she wouldn't be able to make the climb down. It was too steep and slippery. But every time I thought we were stuck, we found another foothold, another branch or another knot on the wet trunk.
