When was the last time you fell asleep to a lullaby?
Some of us, when we were babies, held by our mothers, carried for hours, rocked in our cradle... heard lullabys on our entry into dreamland. Lullabys are like a hot chocolate on a cold winter day. They're comforting and touch the heart in that special sentimental way.
Go fetch yourself a lullaby, close your eyes as you lie in bed, and fall asleep to the soft slow sound you picked. Maybe you will feel nothing at all, and roll your eyes at my odd request, but maybe, just maybe, you'd be transported to your innocent self - the self that was so in tune with the beat of your heart and rhythm of your soul , and sleep rested and comforted, just like a BABY.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
