I believe that I've commented here in my blog about my sleep related problems. Sleep in my life is sort of strange. For example, as I got into my senior years, I had difficulty falling and staying asleep at nite.
However, I do fall asleep easily at inappropriate times. For example, if somebody is talking and has a monotone voice. Off I go! People who observe me fall asleep like this make jokes about. Right in front of me too. Doesn't bother me though.
I am not able to get thru reading a book because of the sleep problem. That's why I don't read books hardly at all. However, recently I learned that I am able to get thru an Audio Book without falling asleep. This is a marvelous thing for me!
Right now I am in the middle of the Audio Book, "The Catcher in the Rye". A very famous book by J.D. Salinger. Have you heard of this book?
The title is weird. Hard to understand. That title may have come from a line in the Robert Burns poem, "Comin thro the Rye." The protagonist in this book, Holden Caulfield, pictures himself being a person who catches children in a field of rye in order to catch them before they fall over a cliff. This is a way for Holden to justify his goddamn crummy existence, as he would put it.
Anyway, I am well into this book and have not fallen asleep even once!
