What keeps you up at night?
Here we go. First discussion-and it's a whopper. We all have different motivations. Sure. We also have different concerns. For some of us, they are one and the same. What pops in your head when it's quiet and you ought to be heading off to Slumberland where there's nothing to distract you from _______? Fill in the blank and join the conversation.

I wish I could accumulate my "sleep time" they same way people do with "sick time" at their jobs, then cash it in all at once in the middle of winter. Yeah, that sounds perfect.
@wlyman: I'm right with you...I try to stay away from bottomless abysses. It's like bodysnatchers.
i would also say that i like being asleep. i think i'm more in-tune with myself then, which is really comforting for me.
however, the falling asleep part is pretty much just that. falling. + heights make me nrvous.
Where Constanza sees a need to stay up because she doesn't want to miss out on life I end up fighting the urge to go to bed, get involved in thinking about something, don't want to put the sketchbook down then continue to think it through once in bed, so I don't miss out on any good thoughts. It's an endless exercise of sleep deprivation.
@wlyman: I never thought I had a need for the notepad by the bed then I tried it and was amazed by the clarity in thinking and overall sense of organization it brought to my creative process. As a habitual pre-sleep thinker (and subsequent forgetter) it's helped me sleep more soundly and get into REM much faster.
i love the notebook by the bed. i also agree that waking the wife up to tell her what's on your mind isn't advised.
