October - Flashbacks and Midnight Wanderings

I remember every night as clear as crystal. The accident, the pain, and the journey I was embarking on. As I lay in bed at night, my eyes would close against my will and I would be drawn back into flashbacks. As the moon and stars gradually rose, I would awake to startled breathing and a scared look on my face, eyes wide. Usually I would be unable to fall asleep - so I would grab a jacket and leave the house. Determined to not fall back into the deep throws of sleep.

I left the house quietly, both dogs accompanying me as I headed for the park, and beyond. The path lit by the silvery light of the moon. As leaves rustled, painted yellow and orange with hints of red. As I meandered through the park towards the forest and its welcoming darkness. My voice rose to the sky in song. I guess singing was my way to relieve and unknown stress I felt from the flashbacks I had endured. As my voice rose and fell delicately, the soft howls and yips of my two partners accompanied me. Every unwanted feeling drifted away on the breeze as jack frost glittered on the ground.

I kept walking until I came to a silver illuminated meadow, stars reflected in the surface of a gently trickling creek of clear water. This was my sanctuary, my refuge, my home away from home if you will. This was my home - and it would always remain that way should I need it. This was the way to relieve myself - get rid of the stress from my life. Work always tended to bring back bad memories. Now I could actually relax and let down my guard. Now, I was content, enjoying myself and exploring. My favorite past-times. My midnight wanderings complete - I headed back home as the sun slowly began to rise in the sky, signalling the start of a brand new day.

    Claire, do you have the date and time for the demolition? That might help speed up the decision. ((Okay, have a good night, and hope you feel better.))

    @Jon Eckart to the best of my knowledge, the date of demolition has not been set. It closes to the public in two days.

    If you are open to a topic of questionable legality, I could use someone of your skill. As my dear @Joe Kerr has failed to respond, ACME is my next best choice.
    Patty's probably got him tied down. Literally or figuratively, not sure.

    I cannot imagine ACME would object terribly to the end game. It comes to this: an icon of my beloved Singapore, the Merlion of Sentosa, is scheduled for destruction, and I simply will not stand for that. Will you help me save said statue from a fate of rubble and ash?
    In all honesty wtf))

    Okay so bc its technically a cultural monument, one could technically have it moved but moving 37 meters of stone and who knows how much weight is bold af

  • Victorique Victorique:
    It would require someone willing to take it onto their hands, a team to move it, and possibly the postponement of what they planned to put in its place after they demolished it (depending on how fast the first two go)

    Is now a good time to voice that I never liked that overrated merlion? ((Jon’s cleared for this assignment, would be interesting to see how it develops.))
