Are You Asleep Yet

Insomnia prodded me all night, a bit like when you were a kid and had a sleepover and that friend you were never really sure you liked kept asking if you were asleep yet.

Are you asleep yet. Are you asleep yet. Are you asleep yet.

I get up and read the news, which makes me wonder if I have in fact fallen asleep and I had merely dreamed about having been lying awake.

I put the fire on. Send some emails.

I continue reading Patricia Harman’s gorgeous novel. The first sentence I read is this:

“A song comes to
me and I hum the chorus. “And in the end,
only kindness matters . . .”
Is that true?
I think that it is.”

Yes. I think that it is too.
