The morning after

“The simple truth is that you can understand the way you are. 
You can know and love and hate it. 
You can blame it, resent it, and nothing changes. 
In the end, you're just a part of it.” 

-- Brenna Yovanoff, The Replacement

"I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.  
I learn by going where I have to go.”

-- Theodore Roethke, "The Waking"

This is a self portrait of exactly how I feel on a morning after a night of no sleep.
A morning like this morning.
You'll have to take my word for it when I say it's a pretty damned accurate likeness.
Weird, but accurate.
I mean, yeah, I know it's a plastic gumball machine monkey wearing a C-3P0 mask, but ...
Trust me.
It's like looking in a mirror.
