The Stuff of Nightmares: Shoebill Storks and Dinosaurs
In this post:
Rumination about crankiness, lack of high-quality sleep, nightmares, dinosaurs, and shoebill storks. Happy beginning of the week and may we all sleep well tonight!
Anyway, mean birds notwithstanding, dinosaurs, paperwork to go through, and the unending search for the meaning of life, the truth is that brains that don’t sleep well don’t think well. Science has not yet completely figured out why we need to sleep, but it is pretty well known that we don’t function at our top capabilities, that we humans can even get depressed when we don’t get enough high-quality sleep. “No Roxanna, the world is not worse today than yesterday, at least not your world,” that is what Stick Person would say, “Get your ass back to work.” And so I, ever obedient, got my ass into writing this short blog post. But, if I am disorganized, cranky, and ineffective today, I am true to my biology and my humanity which is just one more fact of life to deal with.
In the meantime, I will give this my best try and know that things are not as annoying as they appear to be. Happy beginning of the week and may we all sleep well tonight!
