In childhood when you wake in the night it's often to fear; in adolescence it's to the engorging ache of lust. In adulthood, in the wee small hours, even a happy man or woman wakes troubled, and at first, before the full return of identity and causation, the feeling is sourceless and absorbing, as if part of a cosmic sadness every adult sleeper taps into. Wo bin ich? Where am I?
-- Steven Heighton, Afterlands –
As for me, I tend to wake up in the middle of the night and want a hamburger!
At any rate, this book Afterlands, I am reading it right now and I’m telling you friends, I cannot put it down, it’s that terrific.
Have a great Thursday!
