To Sleep, Perchance

Sometimes, a day is lost to illness. You can feel as bad/guilty/frustrated as you like, but you’re just not able to do much, physically or mentally.

My bright spots today were very bright – the voices of friends over the internet, a beautiful warm afternoon walking puppies. But ultimately, I’ve got through today thanks to one thing:

At a recent Handfasting, we were asked to call upon Morpheus, Lord of Dreams. Some may call him deity, others not.

But while sleep contains many mysteries, it/he also contains healing, allowing rest and ultimately, living. Morpheus may have stolen my afternoon, but I’m here and writing because of that.

Sleep isn’t a waste of time, not at all. Rest is necessary, and we dishonour both Morpheus and ourselves when we forget that.

  1. Good advice, Cat. I have not slept today despite still being abed and am now feeling the worse for it. Tomorrow I must give in to my body’s needs even if it feels as if I’m being lazy. Not that I’ve achieved much with today’s interweb ramblings! Mind you, last night I did ask for guidance in my dreams and got Holmes and Watson on a moped. What the heck does that mean?!
