John Coltrane’s Handwritten Outline for A Love Supreme
I was able to fall asleep last night but then I had dreams about moving, work, money,etc. I woke up in the middle of the night. Getting rid of the covers so that I was cold helped me to get a little more sleep. Over all, I did not get enough rest, but I am still excited about my efforts to improve my sleep.
Seems like there’s more backlash against Black Friday this year than ever before. Would you agree?
Buying things with any kind of financing often makes my sleep less restful.
Last night I tried to stop browsing the web a little earlier. I then read YA adult fiction until the pages got blurry around midnight. My sleep quality was not great. It might have been about a 5.5 out of 10. I got out of bed around 6:45. As someone who needs 8.5 hours of sleep, I was tired. But, I was alert enough to be productive at work. I hope to continue learning about CBT-I. I really need to get my sleep hygiene back on track. I am excited for the improvements in the quality of my sleep and life will come from these efforts.
Hi. I am stressed out. However, it will get better. I am going to try some CBT. I just read about it. It is cool. God help me. Thanks! Be well!

In 1963, a 16-year-old mailed a survey to 150 novelists, asking if they intentionally planted symbolism in their work. Here’s what they had to say.
The world is running out of soil
Or rather, the world is running out of topsoil, the nutrient-rich soil in which we grow most of our food.
A rough calculation of current rates of soil degradation suggests we have about 60 years of topsoil left. Some 40% of soil used for agriculture around the world is classed as either degraded or seriously degraded — the latter means that 70% of the topsoil, the layer allowing plants to grow, is gone. Because of various farming methods that strip the soil of carbon and make it less robust as well as weaker in nutrients, soil is being lost at between 10 and 40 times the rate at which it can be naturally replenished. Even the well-maintained farming land in Europe, which may look idyllic, is being lost at unsustainable rates.
