Sponsored by karenament.burganrealestate.com/ Ps 105:2-3, 4-5, 6-7 R. (3b) Let hearts rejoice who search for the Lord. Sing to him, sing his praise, proclaim all his wondrous deeds. Glory in his holy name; rejoice, O hearts that seek the LORD! Look to the LORD in his strength; seek to serve him constantly. Recall the wondrous deeds that he has wrought, his portents, and the judgments he has uttered. You descendants of Abraham, his servants, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones! He, the LORD, is our God; throughout the earth his judgments prevail.
Remember when you were a little kid and one (or more) of your grandparents would talk about never sleeping?
For me, it was my paternal grandmother, my Nonna.
“No, I never sleep. One or two hours a night is all I need,” she’d say.
Wait. What? What homosapien could survive on such scarce slumber?
I remember becoming frightened that Nonna was perhaps, how you say, otherworldly?
In fact, I worried she might actually be a vampire. Once I even feverishly searched her attic for a human-sized bat perch --like a sturdy pipe or beam-- from which I feared she might be invertedly napping occasionally.
Was Nonna really able to function on such little sleep and a handful of homemade meatballs?
Was she an Italian Ninja Warrior or a Vampire?
Did I inherit her penchant for counting sheep well into their octogenarian years?
Or am I, too, a nocturnal cave-dweller?
All of these questions will be answered (and more!) in this week's column:
PK: Virtual Vampire or Insightful Insomniac?
Catch some zzzzz's now because you'll want to be wide awake for this one; hee!
