365 Inspirations—220: Bedtime

View from where we are housesitting in Seattle
"Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh..."—Taps by Daniel Butterfield

The day was full and very productive. Yoon and I went to the Seattle Art Museum and saw 30 Years of (Outrageous) Japanese Fashion, ate lunch at a lovely Chinese restaurant with a view of the Sound and then went to Pike Place Market.

We are housesitting on Puget Sound and the picture to the left is our view!

Tomorrow we head off on our third annual yoga/writing retreat at The Yoga Lodge on Whidbey Island. We were also preparing for that.

Now I'm pooped, to be quite honest, and the guest bedroom where I sleep while I'm housesitting here is calling my name. In fact, it's been calling my name for the past two hours.

My inspiration is bedtime.

Bedtime was something I fought when I was young and now I welcome it with open arms.

I can't wait to get under the covers and dream, dream, dream.

For the past two nights, I've had very vivid dreams where I saw clearly the answers to some things I had questions about. When I woke up, I knew exactly what I had to do. I look forward to laying down and letting go again.

Sometimes the day can be so full and that makes bedtime even more of a treat! Now I will leave you with a beautiful sign we saw in Pike Place Market today! It sums up how I feel these days...

Good night all. Sweet dreams!

Is bedtime something you look forward to? Do you dream at night?
