I have been trying really hard to clear my head at night so I can sleep. I’ve found a channel on Dish Network that plays soothing music. It’s called “Dreamscapes”. It works for about five minutes and then things start popping into my head:
- did I pay the water bill?
- what is going to happen to my sons?
- I wonder how the home equity loan is coming along.
- did I close the windows downstairs?
- I really need a box of wine.
- what was that noise?
It’s like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man on Ghostbusters …. no matter how hard I try to clear my mind, the things that will destroy me just keep popping up.
