Waking From A Dream: Rest Less

08 Oct

Some time in March, she gives over to the monotony and embraces her life as a Tax Accountant. Her waking hours are filled with tax return after tax return. 15 hour days, 6 days a week from February until mid-April.

The dreams don’t help. Spending every waking moment in tax-land begets tax-land dreams. They are the definition of mundane. There are no talking hippopotamuses or fanciful flights out the window. She spends her “restful” sleep living another full day of work and wakes up to have a second. Her week stretches on without any mental break.

April 14th creeps further away each night.
