tree branch

Reminds me of the overgrown tree branches from the run-down weird house next door that used to hit my bedroom window at night. The Santa Ana winds would blow like crazy in the winter ("winter" by LA standards) and make those skinny branches whistle and whip my window like they were out to get me- it terrified me as a little girl. Now it's sort of comforting, a homey change from hearing the workers yelling outside my window at the crack of dawn or listening to my neighbors blast terrible music and scream at all hours of the night. I go home now and lie awake in bed, hoping the wind will blow and the branches will whistle me to sleep.
