Watch What You Think

This morning I looked around at the bathroom and thought, "I haven't seen a single insect in this house since I moved in three months ago."

This evening I saw a roach in the kitchen sink.

Life is always like that: overturning every conclusion, never letting you rest easy. As soon as you think, "X is over," X returns.

(This is a kind of little post I want to start writing now and then: odd offhand observations, casual sidelong moments, quick notes for a "commonplace book.")
