I’ll catch you somewhere over the rainbow
Some days, most days, ok, nearly every night, I have trouble sleeping.
I don’t try to worry or stress or anything like that but my head just won’t stop its natter.
Ok please be aware I do not have voices like that I just mean my head kicks in. I enter this awake but not quite fully state where I write entire songs, lyrics, drums, guitar everything…it’s all there in my head but pooof it’s gone when I wake up…no time to find a pen or Dictaphone. The same happens with stories, I am always writing stories in my head – whilst I am out walking, trying to sleep……..it’s relentless….but in a really fun creative way – I just wish I could be as good when I am awake.
The only thing with this is that sometimes you can have the most vivid dreams – so real you are not sure if they happened. Did that person really say that to you? Did you really just win a ride on a unicorn? Is your house really now up in the clouds?
Waking up can sometimes end up disappointing as I go to reach for the lovely new dresses I think I have but alas they are not there. I reach for a mirror to check out my lovely clear sparkling skin and glossy hair but alas just little old me looks back, complete with bed head. I go outside thinking that ok maybe the unicorn won’t be there, but surely the pumpkin coach will be, I can’t have dreamt up both, can I! Or can I?
But imagine waking up in this bed every day – you couldn’t be sad could you!
(OK there is a slim chance you will dream about being eaten alive but at least it’s a rainbow doing the damage!)
