Everyhting is interesting today: the children palying in the front yard on the other end of the street, the girl at the neighbours playing the piano (she's palying the same piece over and over again, over and over, over and over), the teabag in the emptied teacup that's still on the table since breakfast, the food in the fridge (some of it is actually growing new life on it), ...
Everything except the things I really HAVE to be working on.

That's what a couple of sleepless nights do with a human being.
