Giving insomnia the finger (actually four fingers because I hate it that much)

“Every time you come in yelling that God damn "Rise and Shine!" "Rise and Shine!"
I say to myself, "How lucky dead people are!”

-- Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie

Fingers with cutout faces, one in stitches 7-8-13

“Do you wake up as I do, having forgotten what it is that hurts or where, until you move? 
There is a second of consciousness that is clean again. 
A second that is you, without memory or experience,
the animal warm and waking into a brand new world.”

-- Jeanette Winterson

“I didn't want to wake up.
 I was having a much better time asleep. 
And that's really sad.”

-- Ned Vizzini, It's Kind of a Funny Story
