I’ve been awake since one a.m. And, for a happy change, not because I’m imagining bugs crawling in my ears or rats running under my bed. Instead, for the first time in ages, I’m awake because my story is back as the dominant running narrative and theme in my mind. It won’t shut off, and that’s a great reason to be awake.
I don’t, however, need for the insomnia to become a frequently recurring theme in my life, given that there are only a few days of March Break left, but right now, I’m banking on a Pre-St. Paddy’s Day afternoon nap to shore me up, after plenty of extra predawn hours in the writing bank.
Insomnia is OK when it’s a good insomnia
