I need to go for a bike ride

I’ve been awake since 4:30 this Saturday morning. The insomnia stems from reading emails before going to bed. The thoughts racing through my head wouldn’t let me sleep. I moved to the couch around 5:00 but did not go back to sleep. Often this little trick works, but not today. Too many synapses in the brain.

Reluctantly, I went into the office (home office that is) and banged out an email explaining the situation as I saw it to my management. I wonder if they’ll take note of the time it was sent. Maybe.

I have to remind myself that this is a good job. I have to remind myself that I don’t have an hour and a half commute. I have to remind myself that they pay well. I have to remind myself that I do not have to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders.

I need to go somewhere where my phone doesn’t work.  I need to unplug from the internet.  I need to get off the grid.

Or, I need to go for a bike ride.
