Yesterday I sat down with someone who advised ” Don’t ever lose that fire, yes you can and do inspire people.” Well damn, that put a spike in my Dignitas research, but what a beautiful relief. I really needed the reminder that there are good people out there who do good things for good reasons, and it’s not stupid to strive for more of that. For however long any of us have.
I can’t get my brain to turn off long enough to sleep through the night, or to get rest when I do, and I’m exhausted all the time. Too used to ongoing sleep deprivation, and the raw abrasion in the light of dawn. Seeking relief in that first burning hot sip of coffee or tea in the morning and something about the hot hot water and the soothing routine of preparation. Insomnia released into full wakefulness and here comes another day.
