Bear Dreams

At my age, it seems silly to be awoken in the middle of the night with scary dreams and then be unable to fall asleep again. Maybe it had something to do with going to bed earlier than usual. But after a dream in which The Wife and I were trapped in our old beater car, in the snow by a riverbed, and being attacked by a grizzly bear who had been enraged by a thoughtless stunt skiier, I found myself unable to get back to sleep and I've stayed up for something like four hours. I may try to get a little more sleep later this morning, skipping breakfast if need be.
