Being away from home

I am currently away from home on business. In the old days, when I was away I would go out and socialize, eat, and drink all evening and night. Now, all I could think about was to get upstairs, lie down and sleep. And how did that go for me? Yesterday afternoon, I lay down, closed my eyes and prepared for blissful, uninterrupted sleep. And then the fire alarm sounded. And then the PA system came on to tell us that it was just a fire alarm and they were searching for the cause, to “not be alarmed”.

Once that situation was resolved I lay down again to rest. And then someone came to the hotel room door to present me with a small gift welcoming me to the hotel.

So then I lay down, and had a lovely nap…for twenty minutes. Sometimes the universe simply does not want us to sleep.
