I've been having trouble sleeping lately - not hard-core insomnia, but a tendency to sleep too lightly, wake up frequently, and take a long time falling back asleep.
An element of Graceling by Kristin Cashore that made a huge impression on me was Katsa's ability to sleep. No counting sheep, no tossing and turning, no keeping her bedmate awake with anguished sighs and moans - she just fell asleep and stayed asleep until she needed to be awake. Now that's a Talent.
So often I wish I had an "off" switch like that.
