There was a full moon last night, the Flower Moon. I love watching the phases of the moon. I love seeing the moon during the day. I love planning night swims under the moon. But man does that full moon mess with my sleep!
My bedroom faces south so this time of year the moon shines right in my window. Even with my room darkening lined curtains I need to wear a sleep mask.
I’ve noticed these last few years that my monthly cycle seems to have synched up with moon. I am sure there is some sort of scientific explanation for this but to me it feels quite mystical.
Now with both my period and the moon on the wane I am hoping to get back to sleeping through the night. I haven’t had an uninterrupted night’s sleep in more than two weeks. I am so tired of being tired.
