“Nightime & The Mist”

   

Description from Artful Chick aka Siobhan: I was originally going to name this one "Insomnia," but it wasn't enough. My aim is to use color to express how I feel when I can't sleep for days on end. After a couple of nights of not sleeping, days and nights meld together and I lose track of time. To paraphrase Janis Joplin, it's all the same day. The mist sets in my brain and reality softens. The worst part is that I can't create much. That's the part that really bugs me (hence the bee bead). I've learned to make the best of it, but I admit I get envious when I hear my husband and the dog snoring upstairs (lol).

    Your pick is fab! Sorry about the insomnia- I don’t think I’ve slept thru a whole night since 1995! Sometimes decaf tea helps…

    Siobhan, this is a lovely pick! :D I’m sorry to hear about your insomnia. I have the same problem and can go days without sleeping. Eventually, my body just gives in to the exhaustion and I finally get some rest. I, too, have trouble creating when my brain is so tired. My husband falls asleep before his head hits the pillow — I am so jealous! My little dog also is a very sound sleeper. Sigh. 8O

    Try some Calms Forte before bed. It is herbal and helps to take the edge off. It might help. I love the colors in the pick. My husband could fall asleep on concrete in two minutes. He and the dogs tend to snore, but hubby is like a buzz saw. I sometimes ask him if he left any trees standing in the redwood forest. Last night I slept like a baby for a change!

    Thank you for the compliments and for the auggestions. I’ve been dealing with this since I was a a kid. Only now it’s out of hand. Sometimes I’m so much like a zombie, but I’ve learned to laugh about it because I can do some pretty silly things. I’ll think of you when I’m up. Thanks again!
