Shine: Your Pocket Guide to Scottsdale Including Interviews with Creatives by Laurie Notaro
I look into the mirror at my patched eye, mushroom head and missing hand, and I do not look pretty in the shirt. At all.
The next morning, I am clomping down the stairs, as pieces of the dream flutter in and out of my memory. A wave of blue, muffled sounds, the puffy head, a fake hand falling to the tile below. I laugh at what stupid dreams I have as I turn on the light, notice my wrist brace lying on the tile floor and catch a glimpse in the mirror of my puffy velvet sleep mask so askew it only covers one eye, and as I take out my earplugs, I see a beautiful pile of blue silk crumpled on top of the toilet tank.
