Artist's Description

“Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleave of care
The death of each day’s life, sore labour’s bath
Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,
Chief nourisher in life’s feast.” ~William Shakespeare, Macbeth

“When Mozart was composing at the end of the eighteenth century, the city of Vienna was so quiet that fire alarms could be given verbally, by a shouting watchman mounted on top of St. Stefan’s Cathedral. In twentieth-century society, the noise level is such that it keeps knocking our bodies out of tune and out of their natural rhythms. This ever-increasing assault of sound upon our ears, minds, and bodies adds to the stress load of civilized beings trying to live in a highly complex environment.” ~Steven Halpern

“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.” ~Etty Hillesum

Sleep is an act of faith and surrender during which we can renew, revitalize, learn, grow, heal and dream. A miracle we repeat daily, we often complain of the hours “wasted” in sleep and yet without it we could not perceive reality or function capably, let alone grow in body, mind or spirit. The may go to our beds reluctantly, but the invention of the snooze button tells the simple truth… we secretly long to give ourselves over to this wondrous act until sleep spends itself out on us, leaving us to the fresh miracle of awakening without an alarm to poison our repose, jangling us awake with merciless noise.

“There is no hope for a civilization which starts each day to the sound of an alarm clock.” ~Author Unknown

“Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest” Ashleigh Brilliant quotes
