"To sleep..."

"...perchance to dream..."

Hamlet III, i

Never mind the dreams. I would just settle for some "sleep." Since Poetroad has been gone, I have not been sleeping well. Maybe 3 hours a night? And then I lay awake until the sun begins to rise and eventually fall asleep for a few more hours...if I'm lucky. Totally sucks.

Are you like me....checking your blog DURING SCHOOL?

YES-YES I'm all about the Dickens characters. If the name is symbolic, I'm all over that. The deal is, I tend to remember the symbolic elements and not the actual names...

LOVED Kafka. Crazy little book. I think I need to read Clockwork Orange this year...

lol - I don't start back until Monday...which might be one reason why I'm not sleeping. Anxiety.

ha ha - yes, I forget names too...except I always remember that Dickens named a teacher "M'Chukumchild."

Kafka is one of my faves!

My kids are not and have never been sleepers, so even now, at 4 and 3, we co-sleep, because otherwise, we do NOT sleep. And as I like to remind naysayers, they torture people by keeping them awake. Wishing you some Ambien-like sleep soon. :)

So true...no sleep = torture!

Thanks for the sleep wishes, Aerin!

BTW, I realize Kafka didn't write Clockwork Orange. I'm just feeling the need for Lit that's a bit on the dark side. Tell me about "The Idiot." I'm reading Crime and Punishment right now and love Dostoyevsky. It reads like melty-yummy honey butter on a warm roll. Simple and complicated all at the same time.

Crime and Punishment is like the main course, but The Idiot is dessert. I've long forgot several passages from C & P, but much of The Idiot still hangs on me like a heady aroma or a beautiful memory (a *terrible* beautiful memory).
