Smarter in My Dreams

That's my conclusion after rewriting the instructions for the truncated octahedron bead for a third time. The second instructions worked but weren't as simple as the ones I saw in my dreams. I wasn't sure if my dream was Escheresque and beyond understanding until I sat down and made the bead in that manner....and it was a breeze. Simple and straightforward and pretty easy to illustrate. So that was how I spent my Saturday evening.

It always amazes me how my brain works out problems when I'm asleep. And then I wonder what kind of sleep I'm getting if my brain is working all night. And, of course, there are times like now when I wonder where sleep has gone. Insomnia strikes!

At 11:30pm I was getting tired and thought I'd hit the sack, read a few pages of the Dan Brown I picked up today and get a great night of rest. HA! I read a chapter, turned off the lights and waited for sleep to take me away. So, three hours later sleep no where in sight, I got a quarter of the way through the book and I finally gave in. I'm hoping the hot milk helps put me out and debating on taking a sleeping pill.

I've has a super productive week and that's probably the problem....trouble turning it off.


  1. Hah! I see why you are so curious about quantum physics - you have a strong interest in how things are composed! Bummer about the no sleep part.

  2. You know I don't often remember my dreams but when I do they mean something or show me something...I find that very interesting!!!

    To bad about the sleep issue though...does caffeine or sugar cause you problems?

    At least you had a productive week...

  3. Oh yeah....I like to know how things work.

    The sleep issues mainly come from an over active brain....apparently mine didn't come with an 'off-switch', my brother says he got mine as well as his because he has trouble staying awake.

  4. I love those beads!
    Sorry to hear about your sleeping issues... I so relate! :-)

    Wishing you better sleep! :-)
