Sleeps

thursday

I used to sleep like a comma. Then I had knee surgery and had to relearn a lot of things. Lately when it’s just me I tend to be most comfortable when sleeping like this, which is kind of a carry-over from needing the Knee Leg to be straight as possible and letting the rest of my limbs curl inward.

I realized the other night this is almost exactly like the “hanged man“.

According to wikipedia, (quoting A.E. Waite) the Hanged Man could mean: sacrifice, letting go, surrendering, passivity, suspension, acceptance, renunciation, patience, new-point-of-view, contemplation, inner harmony, conformism, non-action, waiting, giving up.

Which, if you (like me) have a recurrent insomnia, is actually pretty apt.
