It’s 2:43 AM on a Saturday night. Luckily I don’t have to be anywhere tomorrow so it’s ok to let my creative juices ebb and flow at will. No need to force myself into slumber. I have all the time in the world.
I adore the quiet, the stillness, the cool darkness when the rest of the world sleeps…except for those crazies who get up and go drive around town to who knows where at 2:00 or show up at the gym shouting to their friend across the room and chatting with the girl in the massage chair who obviously just came to relax in silence.
I think part of my nocturnal tendencies are a hormonal imbalance and adrenal issues, part could be that I have trained myself since childhood to fight sleep…I’ve always had so many things to think about and never enough waking hours to engage in all that thinking. Therein lies the crux of it all. I just love being awake at night.
Someday I’ll be a famous blogger and I’ll sleep from 1:00 in the afternoon until 10:00 in the evening. It is going to be fabulous!
(It’s also entirely possible that I will eventually repair my circadian rhythm with a nice, long camping trip free of electronics and responsibilities…but we won’t think about that tonight.)
