There will be no more flying from now on - not for me, not for the longest time. The last 3 international trips I’ve done have not been of my choosing, so now I choose not to go anywhere for a very long time. I’m becoming rooted, increasingly averse to leaving my pets, my plants and my plans for this and that.

As I crossed several timezones on this last trip, I’ve had serious jetlag. It was worse going east, of course, lying awake and desperate to sleep in the darkest hours of the night. But even going back I seem to have been somewhat stuck. The first proper night I fell asleep early in the night and woke up at 2 am. The second night I got up at 4, and now I’ve progressed to 5. That’s when dawn begins, so that’s acceptable.

Insomnia sucks, but if you’ve gotten a little rest, you can actually do things. After a trip I usually feel energized and observant, ready to deal with stuff. I’m cleaning, planning, looking at rugs to cover up tatty carpets, out in the garden as soon as the sun rises, cooking Chinese from an intimidating cookbook for brunch. Was that six things? They’re not impossible. Only sleep is, for now.

Oh man Tamf do I hear you. I'm taking after my mom in this, growing more insomniac as I grow older, and the most frustrating thing I've found is that it doesn't even allow me to be productive since I have all this sudden spare time; it's just "too wired to sleep, too tired to work" and it's an absolute curse. I salute you for getting to do all this, you're my hero!
