iv. “Just resting!”

20 November 2005 at 07:41 | Posted in Circadian rhythm | Leave a comment
My wise grandmother lived with us (or vice versa) on a farm.  All the animals slept, not just the people.  Some seemed to sleep just barely – they’d look at you with one eye.  Grandma and I studied them all.  They (we) all needed rest to grow and be healthy, she said.  I’m sure she decided to use the word “rest” and not sleep, as we all knew that I spent hours in bed not sleeping. We developed the agreement “Just resting”.  When Mom would look in on me at 1 or 2 a.m., I’d chirrup “I’m just resting, Mama!”.  She’d look so ridiculously sleepy.
I’d try to grow and be healthy.  I was tall for my age, which proved that it worked!
