It is a strange habit I've grown into.
Every night, no matter when I go to sleep, I wake up and toss and turn in the bed. Back and forth, adjusting the pillow, trying to find a position, arrange the sheet, then back and forth, side to side without any rest.
It seems I wake up and can not stop thinking. Like a flashback of faces, phrases, songs, events, future plans, and past occasions. There is no theme to these thoughts just a random streaming of visions. Not a dream, for when I do go back to sleep I have the most bazaar dreams, but the tossing and turning time is a nightly wander into the subconscious.
Sometimes I get up and watch bad television. Sometimes I log onto the Internet, but only the people on the other side of the globe are awake. Sometimes I just toss and turn until I wear myself out.
I awake refreshed and after a cup of coffee and a bottle of water, I'm on my way, but I know tonight; I'll be tossin and turnin.
