Unquiet Slumber

Is it a nightmare if what you dream is real? Ever since I came home from the Gulf Coast, the haunting scenes of the Gulf Coast have unsettled my sleep.

I don't remember them exactly. They're not specific images, just fleeting glances of the absolute destruction of some parts of Louisiana when I was there. They seem to be causing a feeling that everything can be washed away in a moment, especially disturbing since the permits have just come back on the new home I'm having built. The feeling that has invaded my dreams has not changed in the four nights since I've been home.

Could I be investing most of what I have into something that could be taken away?
