Turn Off the Light
You know how you can be out walking at night and you pass a streetlight that suddenly blinks off? Sometimes, it's burned out; sometimes, it's overheated, and a sensor shuts it down, circuit-breaker, like that.
If it happens that a light blinks off when you pass by, it kind of makes you wonder.
Something about your energy?
Coincidence explains it, of course, but sometimes that seems to get stretched a bit.
Tonight, whilst walking the dogs for a short loop, only three or four blocks, the light-blinking-off thing happened.
Not once. Not twice.
On the street, in the drugstore parking lot, in the pocket park.
I can't recall that ever happening that many times before.
It's the eve of my birthday. I wonder if it means something ...
