There's another reason I stay awake too long at night: the thinking.
Late at night, when everyone else is asleep and I can do whatever I want, read whatever I want - uninterrupted - a funny thing happens.
I can think.
"Oh, you think all the time!" You say derisively.
Not like this. The thinking I'm referring to is when you read something and it lights up your brain and then you make a connection to something else and another thing and again, then off to a video and this other place and suddenly you get this golden glow in your mind. As if you are building a vast web and can suddenly see the interconnectedness of yourself and the world around you. How if you do this, then that will have an affect on that.
Suddenly, your monkeysphere gets bigger.
And that feeling? That your brain is kicking into high gear and is humming along, firing on all cylinders? That feeling is addictive. It's also very fragile and as soon as a twin wakes up?
