Sudden Burst


Last night after dance rehearsal, and a couple of beers, and quality time with good friends, I closed my eyes and fell into a fitful doze.

I know I slept for a while. I remember bits and pieces of a couple of dreams, but I also remember waking up at three in the morning with ideas... many ideas. Blogs to be written, headers to design, meals to be cooked, emails to be sent... you get the idea. Not my typical 'middle of the night list making,' but this sudden burst of creativity.

Not wanting to wake CSB, I didn't get up and write anything down, but as luck would have it, a lot of it stuck. I feel good today, creative and productive, as if my mind has passed some kind of creative block.

I don't know if it's because I am starting to feel better about my dancing (even though I tripped myself and landed on my ass during a dance last night), I don't know if it's because I'm starting to feel really comfortable around a group of new friends, I don't know if it was running into Liz and hearing her talk about an inspirational friend, I don't know if it's because I had been missing CSB, and spending the evening with him was just what I needed. Maybe it was just that I was sleeping on the "wrong" side of the bed.

When it comes down to it, I don't really care about the 'why,' I'm just going to enjoy that it is.

I just have to get up and write things down when I wake up in the middle of the night with ideas. Otherwise I just can't go back to sleep LOL.
