Envying Insomnia

The Terrible Heat (will be worse tomorrow) didn't prevent me from shopping, but didn't prevent me from falling asleep after I got home— did the opposite of preventing me from falling asleep. That's what happens when I don't get my afternoon nap, and the drawn drapes dim the harsh light the west throws at the house. But then waking at dusk is always disorienting, and I'll feel out of sorts all night now.

I should eat something. Skipping dinner two nights in a row is probably not a good idea. I'd rather go outside and feel the blessed coolness, though. Maybe it will dispel this lingering drowsiness. Maybe the summer stars have something to tell me that isn't going to be on television or the Internet. Maybe it won't feel as late out there as it does in here.
