Replacement for Naps
When Linus refuses to take a nap, like today, he instead has two hours of “quiet time” which consists of reading, playing puzzles or blocks. I prefer the naps, especially since we both have colds. At least he seemed to sleep pretty soundly last night. He fed before bed and then not again until 4:30 a.m. That break was refreshing. I actually remember dreaming, but they were nightmares. It could have been due to the cold medicine, being really tired, or just Satan trying to get to me when I am weak.
For some reason, listening to music always brings me back. I feel more whole and like myself when I hear music. It speaks to me and heals my soul. As a writer, the lyrics are very clear to me. I love the beat of certain songs, but the words are what really get me. I have many songs I have written, but I don’t write them as much anymore. It is hard to make the time and explore what’s going on in myself. I miss that journey. I wish I could go into my heart more often. Getting to how I am actually feeling is what is missing from my day.
