I usually sleep very well, in fact I sleep through highway noises, loud snoring, and one time, a fire alarm. Renee was staying over at my apartment in New Jersey when the alarm went off at 4 am. She had to wake me up; I never heard the alarm. Happily, by the time I was awake enough to start going down the eleven flights of stairs the alarm stopped.
But once in a while I spend the night mostly awake. Usually it’s because I drank coffee or tea late in the day or I have something pressing on my mind. Yesterday was none of that; I was just awake. All I could do was think about what I was experiencing: feeling my heart beating; my legs aching a little; keeping my upside ear covered; what to do with my arms; all that profound stuff. I’m moving slowly this morning, but I’m going to get dressed and go exercise. Maybe that will help.
