Waking This Morning

Day 47: March 24

A depleting ache consumes her entire body. Joined by a soft throbbing at the front of her skull, she knows that she needs to sleep. It is the same sensation when she’s half-awake and knows she’s not ready to wake up. But now she is awake and alert — but aching as if she still needs hoards of sleep. Worse, it began after she had collapsed from exhaustion last night (well, earlier this morning). Deeply asleep, but unfortunately, as usual, she had to put her book away, turn the light off…and after she had: head on the pillow, mind alert, head aching. And here she is in the morning.


Last month, inspired by the-cassandra-project and their Every Day Challenge, I wrote every day to raise money for the Urban Justice Center. You can still donate here or please spread the word. I assume, since I set it up, that it’s still available if you want to. Thank you.
