Sleep

Saturday & Monday nights were the best nights of sleep I've had in a long time. Last night especially. It doesn't help that I haven't been in my own bed most of the other nights, sometimes on couches, other times in guest bedrooms or camping. Still, last night I slept like a rock. I think I was asleep before I hit the pillow.

And it felt DAMN good.

The other nights, it's been waking up in the middle of the night, or waking at the crack of dawn and tossing and turning until it was time for me to actually rise. Sometimes there were intense dreams that went along with those evenings, other times it just the half awake dream-state musings that keep your brain in motion, languidly drawing connections only possible away from the stimulus of the day, and integrating recent experiences and growth into one's psyche. All good things in terms of brain and spiritual health, but sometimes unsettling as the garden of the mind gets turned over to find the fertile soil below...which makes that first night of sleeping like a rock all that more satisfying.
