Insomnia and Blogging 201

It’s early in the morning, but I actually awoke two hours before my alarm would dispassionately pry my eyes open. No, 4:15 is too early to get up. But I was SO awake and then remembered reading somewhere that if this happens – insomnia- that is when you should get up because it is your creative juices stirring you awake, whisking around in there. But I didn’t, I willed myself back to a light, surface doze which sunk finally into real sleep what seemed like minutes before CBC2 began filtering into my web of slumber. Yes the 201 blogging task was swimming round my head during my sleepless hours, more of an excitement to get going on it. And I would’ve gotten up had it not been that I would soon have to head down to my boat, then to my car, to then arrive to a full day at work.

But now I’m up at my usual time, have had some coffee (in a regular old cup – see my post on “attachments” to understand my plight) and ready to put the day in a headlock. In a good way.

How do you respond to your insomnia?

Recovering Creative

I live on a tiny island on the Canadian west coast with about 300 of my neighbours. I am a Red Seal chef and certified baker (retired), an artist, an amateur photographer. I write, (unpublished so hesitate to call myself A Writer) sing, and can bang out some reasonable sounding chords on a guitar. And I grow a veggie garden. Older, wiser, and armed with insights and experience, I am on a conscience pursuit of reclaiming my creative life. I see it as a career change. Next level.

  1. For me it’s a cup of tea and a bit of reading, either a book or on the internet… or a hot bath! Sometimes I spend a bit of time doing light brainless tasks, like washing the dishes or sifting through the mail… then hopefully back to sleep.
