I watched an episode of “Sixty Minutes”: explaining how interrupted or insufficient sleep can lead to premature aging. Many people “have been making fun”: of the “death by blogging article in the NY Times”: but the underlying story included people who feel the need to be up 24/7 (internet time) to stay at the top of their game.

Hawaiian word:
Hiamoe: _sleep_

    What a sweet surprise seeing the basenji pup getting a little camera action in your BW episode this morning :) Regarding the topic at hand, it is said that if you fall asleep in less than five minutes, then that is a clue you’re not getting enough sleep. I think too many of us these days will run on fumes and kick in auto-pilot on some days. Not a healthy scenario. Thank you for sharing this most interesting topic with us. It’s something to think about – or better yet, dream about!

    Rox, the poem ‘It’s about time’, by Michael Iva
    addresses this issue of lack of quality sleep better than anything I have ever seen.

    WHY, because you and I and everyone else today are TIME POOR.

    Check it out, when you have time.

  3. I think I’ll take a nap! The sound of the waves seemed to sooth my soul a little extra today. Thanks!

  4. @Susan – thanks for the pup ID – I am pretty clueless about dog breeds. Definitely a lot of people running on fumes.

    @Buddy – I read the poem and agree. Technology has robbed us of time in exchange for the ability to create amazing things. Now it is *time* to learn how to set priorities. That is what I am embarking on, inspired by Mr. Warhol’s voice of “So?” whispering in my ear.

    @Orville – How was your nap?

  5. One theory is that we really live in the Fourth Dimension – tall, wide, and deep are the first three. Time is the fourth – nothing can exist for zero seconds … so, even the old notion of what dimension we exist in is changed by the factor of time.

    Just a thought … until that time … Earl J.

  6. Sleep….ah it is a wonderful thing ! Unfortunately it is something that is a rare comodity in my house. Single ,working Mom of a very active toddler :)
