|Why of course not Mark. Try watching TVand you'll laugh yourself to sleep or reading a book, and you'll tire your eyes to sleep or surfing the internet and you'll burn your eyes to sleep. What a clever and well penned prayer. Thanks for sharing. My best, Gloria|

|Good one, short and to the point. I get it on certain days. I think the worrying just makes it worse by keeping the wheels turning in your head.

|You are truly the "Dr. Seuss" of expressing the thoughts of writers. Insomnia for me I've learned is something that can be medically controlled with doctor's supervision, and it can also be a way of God trying to speak to us, if that insomnia had nothing to do with worrying about things we cannot control. I like to call it "dreaming with my eyes open." Even we writers need to deal with sleep disorders more than anyone else. Could be caled an occupational hazard.
A great change in routine works for me.
blessin's to you MC Carroll.

|My sister suffers with Insomniac. Her answer is to get up and read. My answer is to get up and do somehting different for 1/2 hour or longer and when the yawns begin go back to bed. Reading would keep me up all night :-) Wonderful write.|

|Cute or sad...which? As a professional hypnotherapist, I can tell you that we don't need as much sleep as we age, and...we sleep at a different brain wave level as we age. Get up an write something. In the quiet of the night we are most productive as writers. Believe me...the next night...you WILL sleep. ~E|
