Foot hurts - film at 11

Yeah, well, I'll probably be going to a doctor about it tomorrow or something. Martial arts training on an injured foot (no matter what it was that I've actually done) was a dumb-tastic idea. Oh well.

Saw Liz yesterday, and we bonded over Charlie's Angels, romance novels and sugar. Just like old times, without the Charlie's Angels and the romance novels.

My lack of sleep is astounding, and the dark shadows under my eyes are beginning to look like red-ish bruises. I don't want to go on Tamazepam again unless I can help it. I fear the possibility of making my anxiety attacks worse.

And, in a strange revelation I realised that the most influential literary figure in my life was not Blake or Byron or Tennyson or Dunn or Poe or any of those other standard figures that one would be overwhelmingly moved by. No-one quite so reputable would shape my view on poetry so deeply. Instead I realised it was none other than Jim Morrison of the Doors. This is strange, yet oddly fitting, I feel.

Ah, but do you know who the single greatest literary influence on Morrison was? (Hint, he took the band's name from this dude's writing.)

Jim Morrison of the Doors
Aw, man, you just got even cooler. I wouldn't have picked you for a Doors fan, but that's awesome! Morrison changed my life in '91. Completely.

Turn me out and I'll wander, baby

Kiri may have already suggested this, but when my insomnia gets really bad I burn lavender and chammomile oils - or rub them into my temples before trying to go to sleep - it does actually help.

I also found some 'insomnia' massage oil at the supermarket the other day that has lavender and chammomile essence in it.

hugs

hope you get some sleep soon
