Strangely enough ,l can’t fall asleep soundly
in any new place even if it is home.
I guess it’s what we call “comfort-zones” .
It takes 5-7 days for me to get back into
my old rhythm and that can be very frustrating.
Another observation that l have made is
that as l grow older l sleep lesser hours
and still manage to wake up rejuvenated.
Sometimes l literally hop out of bed with
a new thought or idea that l must jot down
immediately before it vanishes in thin air .
(l am old school and write first on paper.)
But,what is odd is that in my younger years,
l slept more hours but usually woke up tired
and very moody .
However;.what promped me to write this
article is , l realized Facebook has made
my sleepless nights worthwhile .
I actually love the fact that in the quietness
of the night, like right now in the countryside
in Kenya, l can finally catch gas with my old
friends in the USA and other areas whose
day is my night.
Another great satisfaction is that l no longer
do those insomniac ,tedious
mathematical exercises of having to count
sheep or was it cows ?
Other times it was counting numbers 100
I now have the absolute pleasure and
freedom to write down my thoughts and
share them with the world.
Thanks to Facebook !
With a cheek in tongue ,l can also proudly
identify myself as a freelance writer ,
and editor all on one plate ?
What a privilege!
I am grateful!
Let me catch sleep before l give you
Hugs and Love
