Nap in the Afternoon
Oil on Wood
There is nothing like sleep. I heard Matthew Walker who is the Principal Investigator at the Sleep and Neuroimaging Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley speak on the subject. He is very engaging and knowledgable. Bottom line: Sleep is essential. Life blood for the brain and our well being.
I would add that an afternoon nap on a summer afternoon in Maine will make one a better person in every way.
NPR did a Science Friday program called "The Science of Slumber" the title of which I like a lot, and Walker is interviewed on The Science Network, although I had trouble streaming it. I heard him on a rebroadcast of City Arts and Lectures but unfortunately, they don't post audio online. If you get a chance to hear him, do so. Or better yet, take a nap.
And sleep well.
