I am having quite severe sleeping problems these days. I’ve always been a light sleeper, prone to wakefulness, but it was never a problem before. But over the last few years, when I developed knee trouble, then tendonitis, near-constant aching from some joint or other has made sleep difficult.
So I seem to have got into a vicious cycle of disturbed sleep at night, fighting to stay awake during the day, then getting so stressed from lack of sleep, and the dread of not sleeping, that I can’t relax enough to sleep properly at night, even though I’m not having much problems with pain anymore nowadays.
Result is that most days I’m grumpy and frazzled and snappy and finding it difficult to get any work done at all. So apologies here to anybody that I’ve lately chewed out without good reason.
Got to get the hardcopy Transit redesigned sometime in the next 10 days, and I haven’t got a single idea in my head. Been looking on the web, but there seems to be a dearth of print design sites – certainly nothing like CSS Zen Garden or Open Source Web Design. Most of the print-design stuff out there seems to be about newspaper design, which isn’t exactly applicable to an A5 booklet publication. Still, I’ve hit dry spots like this before, and always come up with something spectacular at the last minute…..
