Sheep naps and me naps



Just looking at these make me yawn...in comfort that is, like a womb engulfed me. I am going to post these and then go take a 10 minute lay down, something I rarely do but have done twice in the past days, why I don't know.

The sheep are very good at regulating their need to rest. In the heat of the day, rest. Up early and work [for them that means eating] and then rest, whenever it is needed. Look off into the sky and go all zen, ruminate, rest, just be right there...and rest.

It is important to put the chatter aside, the internal dialogue between selves,

"Must make money, get to it!"

"Think of new book idea, quick, before you become obsolete!"

"Do something...anything."

I will put those chatty selves aside right now. I will go be sheep like, my body says,

Rest

Hurrah for naps, the world would be a better place if we all rested when our bodies asked

My ten minutes turned to 40. Divine.

Easy how those naps lengthen. I am finding that napping is something I enjoy now and get up super early when my mind is sharpest. We can all learn from those lovely sheep. xox

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
