Insomnia With Patsy Cline
Lately I’ve had a HORRIBLE time with insomnia! 50% of the time my eyes pop open between 3-4am. It’s so frustrating!So usually I just lay in bed and watch TV. Anything from the news to stored DVR shows to movies. The other morning I watched the 1985 movie Sweet Dreams – the true story of Country Music Legend Patsy Cline portrayed by Jessica Lang (who did an AMAZING job).
I have always loved Patsy Cline’s music – her voice was just amazing – so I’ve seen Sweet Dreams several times before, but it’s been several years.
Remembering the fact that she did such amazing things in just a short 8 years with her career is inspiring and a pure testament that if you work hard enough – you can get to where you want to go!
Watching this movie was also a reminder that while Patsy busted her butt for her career – her husband (Charlie Dick) sometimes busted her face. In fact, according to the movie – I believe that Charlie and Patsy were separated when she was the plane crash that killed her and 3 others March 5,1963.
Nevertheless – while I’m not really having ‘Sweet Dreams’ right now – I didn’t mind going ‘Walkin After Midnight’ with Patsy Cline the other morning!
