Really? I am awake at 4:15 a.m. Fell asleep last night embarrassingly early, like 8:40. Now I can’t seem to sleep anymore and the to-do listing has begun in earnest. The harpies are fully awake and screaming in my head. The house is totally quiet. I guess I’ll work. Maybe it will shut the harpies up.

    I hope the harpies let you have an ounce of peace. Enjoy the silence.

    The harpies don’t like housework, or creative work. Or anything really, that takes your attention off of them. Sometimes it’s very hard to wrestle your energy away from them.
