Good Day World!

Dreaming about a full night's sleep. Even a good nap. What a pleasure that can not be bought! 

No amount of money will induce Morpheus to come to you until he's ready.

Earnest Hemingway once said, "I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know?"

Homer said; "There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep."

Some wits have cures for people who have trouble sleeping. For example W.C.Fields claimed; "The best cure for insomnia is to get a lot of sleep."

Sometimes sleep comes unbidden, when exhaustion takes it's toll. Take the story of the FedEx ground worker who found himself in mid flight after an unexpected nap:


Airplane Stowaway Turns Out to be FedEx Worker Who Fell Asleep


We need to sleep. It's as important as breathing for a well rounded life.


 Thomas Dekker summed up the importance of sleep nicely:

"Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together."

Time for me to walk on down the road...
