INSOMNIA ALBUM: Pictures for the Pre-Wee Hours of the Morning

December 10, 2012

Faces, Pictures


When you’re awake at 3:44 a.m., not willingly, and even all three cats are sleeping, and you are having one of those insomniacal moments in the pre-wee hours of the morning (what the sam hill hell am I doing with my life, are my best years behind me, what were my best years, are these my best years, who was sam hill, etc etc), you decide instead to share a few pictures of recent scenes from your peregrinations about your life. If only to write the word peregrinations. And also because pictures are easy. Easier than figuring out what you want to be when your are old. Or getting back to sleep. | All photos by Douglas Imbrogno. Click photos to enlarge.

    Ah, Doug; you are me. And we are everyman. You shattered my One Big Realization of the Day, which until now had been “It was both disconcerting and life-affirming to realize I have no peer group.~~GHC” Thanks for that?!?

  2. Dave Says:

    Dawn is the perfect way to top off a day. Thus, there is no need to ever get up early.

    Nice poem, David! I have long tried to work deep into the night. But I must admit, I do love getting to bed early and so waking early before the dawn, meditating, making strong coffee and watching as the sun paints the east. The key, work late or rise early, is a house so quiet you can hear the wind in the eaves.

    It’s good to have a peer group, Ginger.
