Good morning all - happy Thursday - we're making our way through the week surely and steadily. And as someone who simultaneously loves and loathes the holiday season (I love the celebration but hate the crowds and the push push push of it all particularly here in the city), that we're also making our way through the holiday season without too much crazy, well, that is a very good thing.
Like many people, I have always had trouble sleeping. I go in and out of sleep with routine regularity, rare is the night when I just fall asleep for 8 hours and wake up refreshed (I'm not even sure what that feels like to be honest).
So this short video by Islena Neira spoke to me of the ways in which falling in and out of sleep presents itself. As a side note, I love flying dreams. I used to have them all the time as a kid and often dreamt that I could see the top of my parents house and other houses on River Road where I grew up. In fact, the sensation of flying was so real, there was a time growing up when I was sure that I really had floated up out of my body and spent the night cruising around the neighborhood. A lovely thought, no?
Here then is today's short video, "Insomnia"
