What Do You Do When You're Awake at 4 a.m.?

Njal's Saga - Anonymous, Robert Cook

 

I had a restless night, more so than usual.  I'm often awake for a few minutes at 3 a.m., but this morning I found myself wide awake at 4 a.m.  Sometimes, if the right radio show is on, the program can lull me back to slumber.  A quick check of CBC radio found a documentary about this Icelandic saga--what is says about Icelandic history, society, etc.  Perfect!  I heard enough of the radio program to know that I'd be interested to read the saga and then I was unconscious again until my alarm.

 

Thank goodness for CBC radio!
