Why, after a more than averagely tiring day is it impossible to rest and relax.?
Who decides when we will sleep and when we will remain wakeful and uneasy?
What perverse and contrary part of our own brain refuses to shut down despite the hour?
Knowing that the morning will be taxing and that the need for sufficient sleep is more important than usual, merely puts more pressure on the weary would-be sleeper.
Worrying about sleeplessness is absolutely pointless, as is deliberately attempting to relax, so, what to do?
Watching television is boring enough during daylight hours so not even worth considering.
Reading only makes the mind more active (well, mine anyway)
Please don't say hot milky drink. Ugh!
Suspect phoning one of my brothers might lead to excommunication (at the least).
Phoning anyone at all not a good idea.
Listening to the silence is unrewarding and a little unnerving.
Talking to myself is unproductive since I have nothing of value to say.
Don't want to go on a spider hunt (might find one)!!
Thinking about Thursday's vote is not going to help anything.
Mentally wandering down the highways and byways of my past is a daunting process since, as we age memories become hazy, fact merging with fiction and however full our memory libraries may be the retrieval system is unreliable.
This is the Summer Solstice and I am a Celt.
Could it be as simple as that?
