Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.
Its 3:00 a.m.
The stars are twinkling
The half-moon is shining brightly
The sound of the numerous semis humming tires, traveling
on the nearby interstate
The freight train on its way to Portland, Maine or
to Lawrence, Mass
The barking of a stray dog
The meowing of an alley cat
Just some of the things that go unnoticed, and not heard by most of us, as the human populace, are in a deep and restful sleep
If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.
