Lovely evening tonight. Dare I say it?, but I slept a lot of the day away; excusable really as I didn’t get to bed until 7 this morning after working all night.
I mean WORKING (not partying), trying to get another chapter completed for my next book. Actually, I work better in the quiet hours; traffic noise has subsided – if not completely diminished -; the air is stiller without interrupted sounds, but more than that, everyone is asleep. The whole world seems different. Everyone is lost in some unconscious state, while I am fully conscious. It’s a nice feeling – at least it gives me some incentive to work.
But finished the chapter, then I realized it was already light. So no reason to stay up, and went to bed about seven. So then, a cup of tea as morning was only just beginning, but then, some much needed sleep.
Phone rang around 4.30 pm, which I almost took as some ‘alarm call’! No problem though. It was a friend just giving me some news. But it woke me up nevertheless.
So then I wandered up the road about 6.30, pleasantly subdued by a cool breeze that wafted through the trees in nearby Highgate Woods. But onto the distant shop. There was no choice really if I wanted more wine for the evening.
At least it shouldn’t be a long night again. Now that that particular chapter is finished.
For now folks
