Have you ever just taken a little break
from the vacuuming
and the laundry
and candle pouring (or any other little project you might have)?
The timer was set to go off
for the time I needed to go fill the well of the candles I'd been pouring.
I'd just rest my eyes
until the bell rang.
Have you ever been awakened by your husby
to find yourself sitting in a chair
gently holding a pair of socks to your chest
the ones you had taken off because your feet were too hot?
To find the sun still shining?
To have no idea what day it is?
"Your timer went off," he said queitly to me.
Have you ever fallen asleep so soundly within a matter of very few minutes
right in the middle of the day
without any intention of doing so?
And it was wonderful.
