This morning I had (for my own piece of mind) to be up at 0400 to make sure that a friend was up to catch a plane to the US. I set the alarm on my iPhone. If I was catching the plane I would usually sleep soundly until the alarm (or, more usually, wake just before it went off). Presumably because it was someone else I slept in short fits and starts through the night checking the time. I know that many of my friends do not sleep soundly and are awake a good bit during the night or have difficulty getting to sleep in the first place. Never having had either problem, last night as I lay awake my mind spent a lot of time mulling all sorts of things over including the terrible curse that chronic insomnia would be.
Today I am thankful that usually when I put my head on the pillow I fall asleep quickly and I sleep soundly.
The post script to this post is that as soon as I'd checked on my friend I was asleep: properly asleep!
