The children are asleep and so is my partner. All in the land of the nod, happy and resting. There is something so comforting about sharing the silence of sleep, their peace, their relaxation. The atmosphere in the house changes, it seems to ligthen up, problems leave through the chimmey and everything is all right for a few hours. I love this silence that surrounds me, it makes me feel close to all of them, like a protective presence watching their dreams. When was the last time you lovingly watched someone sleep?
