I am seeing things out of the corner of my eye. But when I turn to look, nothing. 
If only whatever it is would slow down, or cross my path, instead of flitting about on the periphery, then maybe I wouldn’t be so jittery. 
It is very disconcerting. I wonder if perhaps I am imagining things. Or maybe I need to have my eyes examined.
But honestly, there is so much going on. Here. There. Everywhere.  It makes sense that I am on the lookout. 
I think today I will try to calm my eyes, and my mind. Should I just ignore the flashes of movement, the blurry objects sneaking off to the side? Just concentrate on what is in front of me? Is that possible at this point?
I do remember this happening in the past. A few years ago. I thought I was going crazy. Turns out, we had mice in the house. Speedy little sneaky creatures. We caught them in “have-a-heart” traps and drove them to the woods nearby and set them free. 
Maybe they’re back, or new ones have found their way inside. I’ll set the traps and see what happens. Meanwhile, focus on what is straight ahead.
