Insomnia, my good friend

in sleep...It’s 2 a.m. (or so) and I am awake. Wide awake. And not because I’m having fun.

I learned a while ago that my most creative hours are after the time when most people go to sleep. It’s not unusual for me to be up at midnight, or 1 a.m. Often it’s because I’m working on something specific. Or beause I’m watching something on television.

My night owl tendencies never bothered me. I lack of sleep never impacted the next day. But that’s no longer the case.

After last year’s surgery, my sleeping patterns changed. Now I don’t go to sleep early because I can’t. And the next day I am zombie-like.

So I sit here, with a video running on my ipad, surfing my networks, keeping busy and watching the clock.

It keeps getting later and later. And I know that in a few hours I will have to “be up.”
