Woke this morning at 4 am, which is “normal” for me when “normal” allows for a night of sleep. I felt refreshed for the first time in over a month. Phew! Insomnia has preyed upon my sleep world since I was a child. Sometimes a pounding wave of insomnia crashes my nights for weeks at a time. The recent tidal wave lasted more than a month. One to two hours a night totaled about 7-8 hours of sleep every 4-5 days. Kind of whooped my butt.
But after four nights in a row of at least five hours of sleep I feel like a brand new extra alive being! Yesterday the woodchips piled up as I began to carve the newest sculpture. I experience almost silly good satisfaction each time I scrunch up a “post-it” note from my desktop - a “to do” that is DONE.
So many grand things are stirring in this bright New Year. I am Snoopy Dancing…!
