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.
