Exhausted even before morn’s coffee’s hit the bloodstream!

You ever wake up feeling like you’d run a marathon?

In your sleep?

Last night I zonked out early — a result of insomnia that kept me tossing and turning from 2 to 6 a.m. the night prior.

Still, even with the “rectifying” slumber, I awoke ready for bed!

I’ve my suspicions about the causes. Chief among them is the incredible frustration in the efforts to sell the only two big-ticket items I’ve got, my only home assets, a dining table set and a great futon bed.

Both are my only two home assets that could bring in any money. By any money, Imean more than $20.

I’ve been trying to sell the table on craigslist for months. We paid $50 for the table — much less than it’s worth. All I want is the investment back.

I keep lowering the price and lowering the price far below its value. It sickens me to do so because not only do I have fondness for the table but with its old-school craftsmanship it’s worth so much more.

And then there’s the bed. Futon. A high-quality bed that at this point like the table I practically have to give away.

For two years I’ve been waiting for this moment … the moment when the futon and the table go, spelling the (long overdue) end of my residence and release from prison and journey into a better life and new chapter.

I don’t give these items away because I need the money. I desperately and deeply need the money. I need to get outta here and now or I’ll end up sick and sleeping under a bridge and die here.

And I refuse to become another casualty of Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington.

I know and God knows what it has taken for me to create the means to make this happen. I need the money for this bed and dining set.

I need people who say they’l show up to show up.

I need two people — only two individuals from the whole wide world! — to show up with recognition and appreciation and need or desire for two quality pieces of furniture.

That is support. That is the support that I need so that this move, so overdue, so needed, so necessary and so important, can be completed.

Guess I’m done for now.
