I think I have come to terms though with my sleepless nights. It still bothers me, but now I just go with the flow and deal with my days the best I can. Not allowing the anxiety a place to roost actually gives me a chance to enjoy the quiet and solitude of a home at rest. Fixate on the insomnia and it only makes it worse.
Since my re-entry into the blogging world, I have been exploring, searching, trying to find new folks to meet. Seems my old blog roll could use some updating. Many of the blogs I used to visit intermittently are either gone or there has not been a post for years.
I understand that Blogging is not the cutting edge latest hip communication gimmick it was ten years ago. With the advent of Twitter, Facebook, Smart phones and other instant gratification platforms, Blogging seems almost like snail mail. I have a Twitter account. Signed up shortly after it came out. I have tweeted exactly once since then. I am on Facebook, but only visit my page when forced to by my wife or daughter.
Seems to me if I tried to incorporate into my life all of the E-gimmicks that are available, I would have my eyes glued to some screen 24/7. From the looks of things out there in the real World, that is exactly what has happened to a sizable portion of our population. Everywhere I go, people are staring down at their smart phones while their thumbs dance across the screen. No one can handle their days without constant connection with someone or someplace else. I am almost positive now, we have collectively gone insane.
