What keeps you up at night?
It takes me until the wee hours of the morning to clear the cobwebs out of my head so a lot of things keep me awake at night. I am a child of the moon, and it’s cycles effect me greatly. I spend a lot of time thinking about women and society. I ponder feminism and it’s implications. I alternate between feeling that we’ve come so far and feelings that life was much simpler over 100 years ago. I wonder what it would be like if we all trusted our bodies more, listened to our intuition and contemplated the moon. What if we obeyed the ebb and flow our our own tides and rested when we needed to and took time to ourselves to be creative, or just be, when we needed to. What changes would there be in the world. Great, monumental changes, I expect. Then, because I haven’t taken my time for myself and can no longer sleeo, I get up and study, or read, or sometimes I clean the kitchen (this task is soothing to me especially done under the cover of darkness is a quiet house. Then I go back to bed and vow that I will change things, taking time in my day. I ask for guidance and wisdom and am finally able to fall asleep to be awoken by my infant or a 5 year old who needs a glass of water…..
