for those of you who've heard of my bed mistress, insomnia, this is hardly surprising but here is a mini essay i found on one of my favourite blogs, varieties of unreligious experience
it describes the experience in a sophisticated way ( i never could). there's also a quote from e.e. cummings, which i think carrie might enjoy.
oh, and don't get me wrong, i'm not at all gloomy about it. just resigned. the only thing that really worries me? the throngs of clever young kids with perfect sleeping patterns i have to compete with for a place in academia;-) mind you, they might be talented, but i'm bloody determined. so there you have it.
hope you're having a really enjoyable and calm long weekend.
