Wind

Tonight was quite a windy night, I wake up at 05:30 a.m. because of the wind noise, and that’s quite unusual in Barcelona. I spent the rest of the night in bed, half sleep half awake. Suddenly the blind that is just next to my bed started making a really loud noise, and it wasn’t because of the wind because the blind is far from the window, it just separates the bedroom from the living room. I thought immediately that someone was in my room pushing the blind, quite a scary idea because I live alone. The fact is that I was having an hypnagogic hallucination, something that happens to me from time to time, I got up quickly and I saw that the blind was absolutely still: no movement, no noise (it was completely up, as usual). The curious thing is that I don’t remember having heard before hypnagogic sounds, I just saw images.
