I woke up this morning looking for someone to blame. Someone to hate. Someone who I could make the single target of my fear about the officers killed in Dallas and what happened to Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. It was such a desperate feeling to want to discharge the uncertainty and scarcity. Then it dawned on me that this is the exact drive that fueled what's happening right now.

Instead of feeling hurt we act out our hurt. Rather than acknowledging our pain, we inflict it on others. Neither hate nor blame will lead to the justice and peace that we all want - it will only move us further apart. But we can't forget that hate and blame are seductive. Anger is easier than grief. Blame is easier than real accountability. When we choose instant relief in the form of rage, we're in many ways choosing permanent grief for the world.

This is pretty close to how I'm feeling. Exactly how I woke up feeling today. Ive been crying all morning and couldn't really put my finger on why. I think I've been so angry lately about all the hate and it was fueling my own hatred of people who think differently from me and who I blame for the current state of affairs. The truth is, under that hate was/is incredible sadness. My hate broke this morning, when I heard about all of the police who continued to do their jobs as shots were being fired at them. The sadness and hopelessness and helplessness was all that was left.

 

 



 
 

Thank you for this, Meowie.

 

This "History Repeating" song sure has a lot of impact today.

Night owls stay more alert, longer, than people who get up at the crack of dawn, a new study has found. Previous research has shown that people are genetically hard-wired to prefer either going to bed early and getting up at around dawn, or staying up late and waking in mid-morning. When Belgian researchers tested groups of early and late risers at different times of the day, they found no difference in their ability to focus and react 90 minutes after they woke up. By 101/2 hours after a subject woke up (afternoon for the earlies, evening for the owls), late risers performed significantly better. In early risers, the internal drive to go back to sleep-which scientists call "sleep pressure"-builds up more quickly, dulling their response times and, presumably, their productivity as the day wears on. Sleep expert David Dinges tells Science that the study has "real-world consequences." Identifying the early birds and night owls on any given job, he says, can help employers figure out when workers are most productive and most liable to make mistakes and have accidents.

Wow.

Okay, I just got up. No surprise, right?

This explains a lot for me. But I really wish I could get myself to another pattern. I've got the sleeping late part down perfectly. But it would be nice to have a little more "day" in my day.
Edit: Crap. I'm almost late for an appointment.

Old family joke. I actually convinced my little sister that meatloaf was monkey brains when she was about 5 years old. She cried and told Mum she didn't want to eat it. I had to apologize and promise her it WAS NOT monkey brains.
