Sleepless Nights: What they reveal

Last night was one of those nights I face planted on the pillow about 8 p.m. and woke up around 11/12ish and couldn’t go back to sleep. I know from previous experience not to get on the computer.  I washed dishes, cleaned, did some writing, and then continued reading Bill Bryson’s book about 1927.  Two a.m. in the morning I was reading about the original Prohibition in the 1920’s that made Al Capone notoriously famous and learned a few things I didn’t know before, again, American history several times and didn’t know Volstead didn’t even agree with Prohibition.

Living through this second version of Prohibition and seeing the outcome of it just feet from where I’m sitting now, what Bryson writes in his book still holds true today.  Even at two a.m. the truth becomes clear.

Make those sleepless nights count.
