Just Because..

Just because...my head is so full of coursework, that I feel I have nothing interesting to say (unless you want to discuss the future of theatre in Canada, or the merits of Lovecraft's writing style...Takers?? I thought not).

Just because...I want to remember how easy it was to get outdoors when all I had to put on the Boy was a light jacket, shoes and a sun hat.

Just because...I'm tired. So tired that I feel like I will never be fully rested again. So tired that I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat, or with a drop of alcohol. So tired that even when I do have time to sleep, it's a restless slumber, waiting for the shattering alarm clock. So very, very tired.

Just because...I want to feel what it's like to be able to joyously run down a forest path with nary a worry other than whether or not there will be a snack at the end, and if there's someone to carry me when I get tired.

Just because...this picture makes me happy.

Oh, sister. Me too.

Oh ... you sound so pooped! I know exactly what you mean about not even resting when you're asleep -- it's so true about waiting for that alarm clock to go off. Gargh.

But what a lovely lovely picture. Now I'm feeling all peaceful ... sleeeeeeepy. I hope you get some rest.

Summer will come eventually. And you will feel rested again, too. It's hard, isn't it?

NotSoSage said...

And it makes me happy too.

And will we ever have a full night's sleep again? I hate that feeling of wanting so badly to sleep that you work yourself into insomnia.

Wow. It's kind of weird. I could have written that post about a year ago. Peanut Butter didnt' sleep thru the night until he was 2.5yrs old, so I can so so so relate to the lack of sleep and being able to fall asleep at all times except when I actually HAVE the chance to sleep.

I feel (felt?) your pain. It sucks when you're in the middle of it, but it WILL get better. It will. It has to! Hang in there!

Hang in there and have a nap.

Canadian theatre? Sorry. But I'll remind myself to go to bed on time tonight.

I love, love, love that picture too. And I'm with ya on never feeling rested again.

Thanks for tagging me, btw. I've been out of town for a while and just finally got back in the groove today.

I'll be hoping you get some rest soon!

I ALWAYS want to talk about the future of theatre in Canada. It's a sad topic, though--one that needs to be infused with lots of happy pictures.

I hope you get a good night's sleep soon.

As it should. I love pictures like this -- you just know they're happy and carefree running down that path in the sunshine.
