”When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice: once for herself and once for her child.” ~ Sophia Loren
Upon engaging in some light reading before bed ['Trial of the Will' - Christopher Hitchens], I suddenly found myself wide awake. When will I learn my lesson regarding the written word while as I’m preparing to sleep? Probably never. Don’t do it, Sloane. Just put the book/magazine/laptop down and turn off the lights. Lie there motionless in the dark. Reading will not make you tired. It will stimulate your brain and add hours to your day.
….so I’m cutting myself off right here. Hitch already has me pondering the notion of whether or not I am stronger from that which does not kill me. Instead of yielding to the urge to write before bed [which is even more dangerous than merely reading], I’ll turn on the television and watch Ghost Adventures. Problem solved.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
