Good morning! It's been a long sleepless night. I'm on the 2nd day of my fourth cycle of dexamethasone and one of the possible side-effects is insomnia. Lots on the web about insomnia. For instance there's a movie called Insomnia starring:

Yep, a very unfunny Robin Williams and Al Pacino!

I'm also in some pretty famous company. Fellow insomniacs include:

Van Gogh, Catherine the Great, Shakespeare and Napoleon!

And there's this fascinating site: that lists 41 tips for curing insomnia. Now where else are you gonna learn so much about insomnia except right here!

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
