Anyone besides yours truly having trouble sleeping these days?
To take it one step further, anyone else having weird dreams?
My sleep schedule has become completely disrupted and my dreams have gotten more unusual.
Last night, after sleeping for two hours and then tossing and turning for almost four, I got up to let the dogs out and fed them at a little after 5am. I then went back to bed and didn’t get up until almost 9am. I can’t ever recall staying in bed that late, short of having a bug/flu.
To my surprise, later this morning as I began checking emails/texts, I came across a message from one of our daughters with an article about sleeping and dreaming amid this virus thing.
This is an interesting article from National Geographic that at one point equates the stress brought about the virus with the effects of hallucinogenic drugs. Well, that does explain a good bit of the current content of some of my nocturnal experiences.
The biggest concern I have though, is what is going to happen if we ever get back to work days as we knew them a few months ago? I think it’s going to take some getting used to changing the rhythms our bodies are now following. Time will tell.
To lighten the mood a bit, I was thinking of a song about dreams and came up with more than a few, but decided to settle on Dreaming Again by the late, great Jim Croce.
How many of you saw his name and thought, Oh, wow, I haven’t heard a Jim Croce song in years? Any Croce stories out there?
