Why is it that when you lie awake in the depth of the night, you are never filled with lovely, noble, true thoughts.
Well, I'm not anyway.
What happens to me in that state of half-awareness is that every concern I have creeps out of the crevices of my mind.
Round and round they go, displaying themselves in a kind of circular dance.
And I, not awake enough to take charge of them; and not asleep enough to be oblivious, lie there fretting.
This is not a frequent happening, thank goodness
But I have learnt that the way to deal with it is to grab the moment of more-awakeness to GET UP.
Somehow having my feet on the floor, coffee in hand, padding around in the night stillness, gets my thoughts back in order.
I can be the boss of them again.
On top of that, I get to see who else is at their computer at this time of night
And catch up on friends' news on FB and Blogland.
Speaking of which, do yourselves a favour and pop over here and watch the clip.
It might take a min or two to buffer but its so worth the wait.
Shall I try going back to bed
Or top up my coffee mug?
