So I have this notebook I keep by my bed.

Sometimes I write out thoughts before going to sleep. Other times I write things after I wake up – dreams, or just things that have taken residence in my brain overnight.

And then there are times I wake up in the middle of the night with some burning idea that has to be written down RIGHT NOW!

As I look at the things I’ve written down later, sometimes I see thoughtful philosophy, or witty poetry, or something that at least has potential to be something cool or interesting. Other times I see unintelligible gibberish, or random scratches on the paper (I have attempted to write things down in complete darkness on more than one occasion. Sometimes I can actually decipher what I wrote. I think…)

And then there are the times you end up with gems like the one I apparently wrote on February 19, 2013:

The frog

goes for a jog

around the bog

in the morning fog

thinking about his blog

as he passes the hog


Yep. That happened. There are also some crossed out lines about a turtle leaping hurdles and a fly zipping by. Or something. Gotta love some of the things that happen in your brain when it should be sleeping. Or maybe still is sleeping…
