So today is True Blood day as usual. Great Episode. But I was afterwards I finished watching a Doctor Who episode called State of Decay. For those of you who don’t know, this is an old Doctor Who episode. It is Tom Baker era and part of a trilogy called the e-space trilogy. (If that is all goobly-gook, go to wiki-pedia and learn something.) The important part was that it is about vampires. The thing I like most about watch old Doctor Who episodes is the documentaries and interviews on the end. The ones on the end of this video were great. Especially enlightening, was the documentary concerning vampire literature. (I must note that this video was taped and release prior to True Blood.) The people in the video were contemplating what would be the next big thing in vampires. They were pretty spot on. Also cool 9or disgusting depending on your point of view) was the piece on blood itself, complete with the guy saying he wanted to eat blood pudding made with his own blood. Just sharing!

Your name whispers back to me on an infinite wind.
My mind recalls feelings of bliss.
I longingly reach in fascination for nirvana,
Wanting to give you one precious kiss.
No longer a tactile sensation is this,
Bound to the earth in a golden mist.
My mind has grasped infinite dimensions.
This is no longer a simple, sensual tryst.
Together we soar, souls bound as one.
They fly fleetly over blue skies.
Our minds are so brilliant they blind the Sun.
We burn quickly and fade as love dies.

So my Dad asked me an interesting question, Why are you sleeping so much on vacation? See I have been resting a lot at home and I do tend to narcolepsy but not catalepsy. But this vacation was different. I had been taking two to four hour naps in the middle of the day. I thought it over. Was I eating differently? Had I largely changed my sleeping patterns? Was over/under doing it on caffeine? No. I realized that I was able to relax completely. I didn’t have to watch every single word I said. No one knew me here. There was no chance of the small town grape vine analyzing every move I made, every thing I eat, even where I shopped.( always local of course) It had been such a relief of pressure that my body simply took that time to sleep, which is the body’s healing state. I wonder how much stress all of us are under in this face book oriented world of ours. We all have every move judged. We have every picture critiqued. We are told what is best for us and expected to do it through the sheer pressure of peers alone. No one tells the children to behave anymore, their friends pressure them to behave within the norm. If no one complains that someone cuts in line than that makes it okay. We should start using this system to our advantage to fix our society before it rots to it core. When someone’s child runs in the mall, all the adults should help the parent discipline that child. When a person with 40 items is in the express check out lane, everyone should help the clerk move them to another line. Peer Pressure works both ways and I’m glad to be rid of some of mine.
