Yesterday EVERYTHING seemed tangled up in knots. Even my washing. Ahhhhh! I screamed.

I had been trying to write journal articles and my mind seemed to mix up the concepts and ideas. I had been trying to edit my book but it seemed muddled up as well. I don’t even know what genre it fits. And let’s not mention my love life. All in all I felt as if my brain was tied in knots. And there it was, in my washing too. After five minutes of trying to untangle it I didn’t have the patience to continue.

But this morning things are clearer.

I don’t know how I managed it, but woke up at 10am. That’s almost eleven hours sleep! I can’t remember the last time I did that. I knew I was tired, but… wow.

Oh that’s it – my brain was in knots because I needed sleep. Well, it could be at least part of the problem.

I had been treating sleep as an overrated nuisance. Six hours would do the job. I guess eventually a lack of sleep will catch up.

Hopefully today I’ll do some untangling of my article and book, and I suppose of that darn washing.

In sum, the lesson of the day is that sleep is as necessary as food and water. From now on I’m going to try to catch a few more winks.
