A Little Tune

A melody came to my consciousness, and I listened for a while. Then I realized it was my alarm clock, so I rolled over, groggy with sleep, and silenced it.

I am not a morning person, so there is no good way for me to wake up for work. An obnoxious sound would cause anxiety, and a more soothing one will have me oversleeping.

My wife hits the snooze button on her alarm so many times that when mine goes off; I am not sure what’s happening. I don’t know if it’s hers or mine, what day it is, or how long it has been playing its little tune.

I am a voice actor, an artist, a photographer, and a writer, not necessarily in that order. I love animals and the ocean. I have an AA in Fine Arts and a BA in Psychology. I am an observer, a storyteller, a dreamer.
