bedtime

It's midnight. Construction will begin outside my window in seven hours. My alarm will go off in eight. Sleep is the last thing I want to do right now. Although I will be like the living dead in the morning I am wide awake right now. No desire for sleep at all. I am so much like my mother. I have trouble getting to sleep and trouble waking up. My body clock is set for a different kind of sleep cycle. I would love it if I could stay up for 20 hours then sleep for 10. That would be right for me. I just tend to get a second wind in the evening hours, my mind begins to move quicker and I think on too many things, past present and future. I plan, I evaluate, I critique. In order to fall asleep you must relax and calm your mind, something I can't seem to concentrate on long enough to work. It amazes me how many people I know who can fall asleep at the drop of a hat. My best friend phinny who's birthday it was today falls asleep in the car if you a let him be the passenger and the trip lasts more than 15 minutes. He once fell asleep while we were touring Ireland. He missed the most amazing double full Rainbow. I've never seen anything like it before in my life. I guess there are some advantages to not falling asleep easily. For now I will try to make my mind blank so I can get a few hours of sleep.

Rainbows are magical.

Double rainbows are miracles.

I'm feeling happy today.
