Watching Nightfall
"Someone told me long ago there’s a calm before the storm,
I know; it’s been comin’ for some time.
When it’s over, so they say,
it’ll rain a sunny day....
..I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin’ down on a sunny day?"

-Creedence Clear Water Revival, Have You Ever Seen the Rain


Today i came home to a magazine article on my comp table about 'heart-sleep connection'... i can guess who conveniently left it there ;p Hmms.. anyways i read it and i found out that apparently, i'm part of the 43% of women these days who often get less than 5 continuous hours of sleep at night, therefore, placing me at an 82% higher risk of having a heart attack one day... *oops* ;p That sorta put me in a bit of a depressed mood until i read further on and found out that approx. 35% of women sleep more than nine hours a day and they have a 57% higher risk of having a heart failure too.

It seems that a mere 22% of us women run a normal risk of heart disease - encouraging.

Made me think a little about how i'm living my life at the moment. Things like where i'm at now in my life, what i'm doing, what i want to do, when i plan to do it, what kind of person i am and what kind of person i hope to be, if i keep promising to do what i want tomorrow, will there be tomorrow ... just questions i suppose - not in a particularly morbid way either just in a sort of an 'i-wonder-what-everyone-will-be-like-at-our-20-year-high-school-reunion' way.

Life in a sense is like wildfire (n. - Lightning occurring without audible thunder) - you might not always get what you expect.

Sometimes, that's not a particularly bad thing either.

*just thinking...* :)
