Insomnia Rools. KO?

Hullo ma wee blog,

3.30am and after having been in bed for less than two hours I have tossed and turned enough for one night. It's rubbish! How can I be so tired and yet not able to sleep? Why is my brain on overdrive at this time of night and only in first or second gear for the rest of the day? Was I a burglar in a previous life I wonder?.

Answers on a postcard to........

So as usual I'm at my place at the kitchen table, cup of tea by my side and before I spend some time quietly preparing for a Childrens Panel on Thursday I thought I might share some music that I'll be listening to while I delve into social work background reports.

Here's a couple of tracks from Playing for Change. It's a great movement and I love these performances.

The introduction to their website {} says,

'Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world.'

I return to these two tracks especially, again and again. They never fail to put a smile on my face. {no matter what time of day it might be!}

see you later

and YOU KNOW what I'm listening to, don't you......

I like those songs. You are correct they do cheer you up no matter what kind of mood you may be in. I see you are still having a problem with sleep. I can say the same. Although getting up earlier in the morning has seemed to help me. Thanks for putting up a link to good music.
Talk with you soon

We have a DVD from them. Yes, very uplifting. Nice to know we are not the only ones who were impressed. I am too worn out for insomnia most of the time these days.
Hope yours at least provides inspiration.
