The day has disappeared so quickly...
I am trying to shift my sleep cycle so that I start earlier and waken earlier---no small feat.
For the years we have been in Boulder, my days were usually spent doing things for the household, in one way or another, though not always efficiently. I waited until everyone was asleep to enter my own creative work.
Now I read that a big element in retaining my mind intact is getting enough hours of sleep.
Oh dear. Not only that---I find that getting those hours earlier in the night makes a difference.
Well, now I am alone except for two cats, and should be able to shift into such a schedule easily...
I still love the midnight hours when the word around me is mostly asleep and quiet.
I write. I read. I contemplate. Then I get to bed too late to call it early.
So I am trying once more to shift my sleep-schedule, to write this blog earlier, to eat dinner earlier, go to sleep earlier, G-d willing to get up earlier...(In my ear suddenly plays that line from "Lullabye of Broadway": "When a Broadway baby says goodnight/It's early in the morning...") NOT!
I am now going to close this laptop and go upstairs to sleep. Probably.
