It is 10 at night, and I am unable to sleep.
I have to get up earlier then my body or mind wish too. Every so often, I try to get to sleep early, as I unsuccessfully attempted this evening. I am a night owl. Naturally, my brain does its best work late, thus preventing me from falling asleep. Even though it knows the morning is fast approaching, my mind often refuses to give in to the greatly needed sleep.
Too many thoughts in my head. Today, fortunately for me, they are nothing of consequence. But even still, they keep me awake. Maybe staring at this screen will finally push my exhausted eyes over the limit and my mind will have to relinquish its grasp on today.
Alas, they are now heavy, pleading to be allowed to close. Off I travel to the land of dreams.
