November 19, 2013
Last night while running I found that with each step I went higher and floated longer than usual. As an experiment, I decided to jump, land on both feet, and press off hard from the ground. I saw the sidewalk shrinking beneath me, then the tops of the trees, then the power lines and clouds. It was seriously scary. "This sucks," I thought. "I used to be able to do this, but I'm going to die when I hit the ground. I'd better wake up."

I shivered and pulled the blankets up around me, relieved that I wasn't really flying.
