It is that time of year. Christmas season is soon put to rest and the depths of winter envelope us.
Snow and darkness are the order of the day in eastern Canada. When the sun does shine, it has little heat, unlike the longer days of spring. We prepare for these few long months, when the cold cloaks us in winter's worst, the wind bites at the face and the snow and ice make simple outdoor tasks the most difficult.
One way to cope involves a book, an armchair and a cozy fire.
Before you know it a nap overtakes you and draws you into that other dimension where time or circumstance are irrelevant. Sometimes the nap is from lack of sleep, a boring book, or exhaustion from activity. On occasion it is because the conditions are perfect; your breathing slows, then deepens and you are gone for a short time or hours.
Whatever the reason or the length, there is no such thing as a bad nap.The season is upon us.
