Well, it's 4:30 AM and I'm sitting here in front of the computer screen. This is getting to be a regular occurrence. I wake up often in the middle of the night, especially when I got stuff on my mind. And I'm fairly certain I should not resort to getting on the computer at these times but lately I do. I used to write poems during my bouts of insomnia. Now I surf the web. Ugh.
I'm thinking I'll tell you about my somewhat boring day yesterday. (Cheers all around!) I didn't clean the house, do laundry, go for walks, organize paperwork for taxes or grocery shop. That's all the stuff I wished I'd done. I did go out to breakfast and share a "hungryman" with Eli, watch Mr. Eli's basketball game, sit in front of the wood stove listening to Joanna Newsom, load the beater truck with garbage and recycling for the dump, and then order mexican in and watch billy elliot again. And now that I look at the list of things I DID do, its not a bad bunch of things to do at all, is it?
Checking my favorite blogs tonite (er, this morning) I found this post of Amy Merrick's. She's one of those people I know through this crazy glowy internet screen but wish I could know in person. Her blog, An Apple A Day, is a really good one. She likes old stuff. And, God, the Elmwood posts. That's when I knew she was a kindred.
Anyway, if this post seems like a crazy 4:30 AM post, well, that's cuz it is. Do you guys have trouble sleeping sometimes? Do you get up and write poems?
