Good morning! (Did you see that? I’m being more cheerful than I feel – note the exclamation point.)
After the world’s busiest, most physically demanding day, I drifted to sleep by 10. And here we are. I’ve had very vivid nightmares/chase dreams all night, so it was definitely time for a change of pace. 🙂 Haha, see what I did there?
Here are your Friday Philosophy quotes, from the darkness of my living room:
“…we have bad dreams because our brain is trying to protect us…if we can figure out a way to beat the imaginary monsters, then the real ones don’t seem so scary.” ~ Dan Poblocki
“The nightmares arrived like they always did, much like the best player in the opposition when you’ve heard rumors that he might be injured or sick-but there he is, warming up with the rest of them, ready to take the field.” ~ Markus Zusak
“There are very few monsters who merit the fear we have of them.” ~ Andre Gide
“The night is dark, and full of terrors…” ~ George R. R. Martin
Today, I will be slaying my own dragons. This will involve vast quantities of paper, as I truly use my pen as an instrument mightier than any sword. I hope you are all drifting through blissful dreams, and peaceful rest…

Be glad for the rest! This professor finds himself tossing and turning again, and again! Only once he taps into his Punchyish nature is he able to wind down! Does that help you too?
I find that chamomile tea helps, as well as a snack (such as toast) before bed. 🙂 The problem with insomnia happens when I think I’m tired enough to skip tea and toast!
