Never mind that I also nap during the summer to escape sunlight that has become entirely too fierce. Truth to tell, I often feel called to nap throughout the day regardless of season. And yes, I believe that I am, at times, called to nap.
These naps are different from ones I take because I’m so sleepy that I cannot keep my eyes open another moment. Or, maybe not.
Maybe sleepiness is, paradoxically, a wake-up call? Dreams don’t even have to enter into the subliminal picture. In fact, it’s often more illuminating if they don’t.
