before falling asleep

When you think about the world, and the world is as complex as it is, often it’s a struggle to know where to begin. Sometimes at night when I’m in a dark room, just before falling asleep, I think about my cozy surroundings. And then I think of the billions of people there are in the world all living different lives, having different dreams, feeling different emotions, thinking different thoughts. Many families and friends are saying hello to a newborn. Many families and friends are saying a last goodbye to someone well-loved. Soldiers and civilians are caught in fighting a war. Part of the world is saying goodnight; another part is saying good morning. And I think what an amazing world it is, and how much there is to see, to do, to know. And I’m glad I’m part of it. What about you?
