Last night’s sleep followed a pattern that has been consistent for nearly a week. It was short, with only a few hours of actual sleep followed by hours of semi-conscious drowsing. Only the first two hours of what came last night (from 00:00 to 02:00) were sleep in the classic sense. The remaining 4.5 hours (from 02:00 to 06:30) I spent in bed, drifting in and out of near-wakefulness, continuing the dream that began in the first, two-hour segment.
In the dream I was a pirate captain with a loyal, sturdy crew. After time spent enjoying ourselves in a tavern, events transpired involving an arrogant mayor who sought to impound my ship. And I began to think it time to sack the village.
