"Eyes On You", Mixed Media, 6x6"

I sometimes just wake up. ..and watch my room at rest.
I can't say it's because I'm well rested or even that some loud noise startled me in my sleep. Not even the sound of the sweet birds in the wee hours. Really, I can't find a reason.
I wonder if someone is watching me. Like a spider.
This morning, I awoke at 5 and stayed in bed, eyes wandering around the room, shifting in vain for nearly an hour before I just got up and came down to watch the tube, er, plasma. A nice latte to keep me company for a while. I found Law & Order and grabbed my laptop so that I could successfully lack optimum concentration on either activity.
I got up after only 4 1/2 hours of sleep knowing I would be trying to find an excuse not to go hiking at 8 because I would be too tired. Now I have a half hour to get dressed and go tackle the 5 1/2 mile hike and beat the previous time of 1hr33min, and my butt hurts from leaning on this sofa.
On the plus side, I got to see a really old Chris Noth & Paul Sorvino episode of Law & Order, so old that I saw Claire Danes playing a young school girl. Everyone, even Captain Cragen looks like a baby!
Ok, enough rambling, time to get dressed and sweat before the sun can blister my skin. I think I'll put my eyes to some good use and focus on the trail.
