Update

Woke up at 2am, which I guess I should have expected if I'd bothered to do the math. Managed to get back to sleep, though, and stayed that way until 7. So, about 12 hours. It feels... wierd. My whole body's sore (why?), but I'm pretty alert. It's a completely different headspace. Perhaps I'm a butterfly now.

It's amazing how long we can get away with ignoring our physiological needs, and that it's even possible to not notice what desperate condition we're in. I'm reminded of Daniel Quinn's "boiling frog" analogy. (in the Story of B - probably the strongest part of an amazing book, but not to be jumped straight into if you're at all religious. Start with Ishmael, see where he's coming from, and work your way slowly towards that.)

Anyway, I'm sure I could now accomplish everything I set out to do yesterday. Provided I had any time at all to do it in.

*sigh*

What a waste.

Ishmael is an incredible book. I haven't jumped into the second though. I'm looking forward to it.

out of order
I keep forgetting B comes next. I usually make people read My Ishmael and Providence: the Story of a 50 Year Vision Quest before they get there, to try and change their preconceptions a little and give The Story of B a fighting chance. That book has a lot to love, or to hate. It's not at all gentle about challenging certain worldviews. But you don't strike me as having a problem with that. =)
