the tale:

it was a grey, gloomy, wet, damp day.  i spent some time travelling underground to get to and from an appointment.  it somehow felt appropriate to be underground.  it was also windy today.  for the better part of the day, as I sat at my desk at work, i could hear the wind howling outdoors.  it was distressing.  why is it distressing to be indoors hearing the wind howling outdoors?  i spent the day on autopilot.  i have been doing what i do for long enough now that i can function on autopilot.  when i come off autopilot, i start to dream, to wish, that some things were other than what they are.  not necessarily better, just different.  grey day, grey mind-set, grey clothes.
