Sawing logs or Twisting and turning?

Daily Draw: Osho Zen Tarot ~ Exhaustion

Recognize this picture? Anyone who deals with insomnia would. The mind just grinds on and on and on, relentlessly until it feels like the eyes have been scrubbed with sand and the limbs must weigh a ton and still there is no respite.

I'm reminded by this card for whatever cold comfort there is, I'm not alone. This kind of exhaustion crosses all lines, rich poor great grim. Here's to a good nights sleep, bless all our hearts. We fight a strange kind of solitary battle.

"Their walk is slow, for they are dead weary, as you can tell even when looking at them from behind. Every line and sag of their bodies speaks their inhuman exhaustion." ~ Ernie Pyle 1900-1945

  1. Hi Sharyn,

    Insomnia is a huge problem for me, too. It is such a dreadful feeling to be SOOOOOOOO tired and to not be able to fall to sleep.

    As an almost last resort, I purchased some Alteril to try and it actually made things worse. Yuck.



I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
