Restless Nights

by Jon on December 8, 2010

Ever have one of those nights when you just can’t seem to go to sleep?  You toss and turn and your mind can’t seem to stop running.  You get halfway asleep and start having crazy dreams that just come out of nowhere and make no sense at all.  Then you’re awake again and might even have to get up and go to the bathroom or get a drink of water.  You try again and just as you are about to finally drop off, the dog begins barking at who knows what!  You’re too tired to actually get up and start your day and it’s only 3:00 AM, so you lie back down and try again.  This goes on for a while until you’re just exhausted and you finally fall fast asleep just before the alarm goes off!  Arrrrgggghhhh!

This happens to me a lot.  Often I get up for awhile and put on a set of headphones so as not to disturb Bonnie; and then I practice playing my guitar.  This past Monday morning was like that.  The dog started barking about 3:00 in the morning for some reason.  So I sat up for a few minutes and then decided to play for a while.  In fact I played for almost two hours!  I put together some riffs I’d been working on and came up with a tune to match my mood.  I decided to call it “One of Those Restless Nights”.  Catchy huh?  I think you might be able to pick up on some of my frustrations when you listen to it.  CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.  Hope it doesn’t drive you crazy.
