My sleep patterns have been off a bit lately. I get sleep, but at different intervals and with various results. I'm still working on finding the right formula.
“Turn resolutely to work, to recreation, or in any case to physical exercise till you are so tired you can't help going to sleep, and when you wake up you won't want to worry.” - B. C. Forbes
How has your sleep been?

“It is not worthwhile to try to keep history from repeating itself, for man's character will always make the preventing of the repetitions impossible” - Mark Twain

Are you like a lark that has been repeating the same five notes?

“What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you dreamed? And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven and plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?" - Samuel Taylor Coleridge
What do you think about dreams. Are they powerful thoughts or something that gets in the way of sleep?
