So Tired!

 

So tired, so sleepy! She couldn’t keep up for the long term ahead and instead simply felt asleep over the tasks that had to be completed. Tomorrow will be another day, she said to herself; tomorrow everything will look different and from a new perspective, when better rested.

The scent of the words printed below involved her, while she enjoyed her dreams of peaceful rest and final abandonment. Surrounded by the knowledge, the ideas and the projections that could be extracted from the scent, she rested completely unaware of the changes already happening inside her head.

All she read, all she imagined, all she thought, everything was already inside her head, moving, forming new shapes out of the original created at the time of insertion. Every new knowledge that found home in her brain was morphing into a new concept, at the time it found connection with whatever knowledge, thought or idea was to be found already there.

Dreams!

She rested, she dreamed, then she grew up a little more. Good night little one! Have a pleasant rest and a wonderful awakening! You’ll be a little bit different tomorrow!

    Raul,

    I love that picture and the words you wrote to it. I really liked this line, “The scent of the words printed below involved her, while she enjoyed her dreams of peaceful rest and final abandonment.” I like the idea of the “scent of words.”

    I also like how you talk about the value of dreams and how brains are constantly working, even while sleeping. It’s interesting to think that we change after each slumber; that new things have been put together in new ways. I like this idea and I really enjoyed this post. Thank you:~)

    Hi Sara,

    Isn’t it amazing how our brains keep working no matter what? And how we can feed it and nourish it with the scent of words from books, so like muscles, it grows and become stronger even while we sleep?

    Thank you for your kind words! The encouraging scent from them is of infinite value for me :)

    Hi Davina,

    Maybe what we call sleep is just activities without phisical participation.
    Isn’t that little cat really cute? Sleeping so tired over the books!

  4. Raul,

    It felt like it was written for me (or anyone) who is busy working in life or with kids. I love the picture and message. In India, my adult relatives take an afternoon nap and it seems to work wonder for them. We in USA are so much sleep deprived…

    Hope cat (or person) in blog got the sleep she deserved!

    Hi Preeti,

    Seems to be a common problem the lack of sleeping time. I hope you can find enough time to properly rest in your busy life :)

    Hi Joy,

    Isn’t that a cute cat? You can’t help it but smile when you see that little creature sleeping over the books.

    Resting, sleeping, dreaming, so important parts of our lives and our growth, yet so much neglected in these modern and faster times.
