I have an elaborate bedtime ritual, and I'm totally OCD about it. There's good reason for that. The act of falling asleep is the most delicate of all transactions for me. One false step, one thing out of place on the road to dreamland, and I will be awake until the wee hours of the morning.
It's been happening a lot lately. Like last night. A thunderstorm woke me at 1:30 and I spent the next three hours in restless sleep.
I did get some writing done. You can read the fruits of my midnight labor here.
How are you sleeping these days?
