The last thing before I go to bed and to calm myself is you, your voice. Your beautiful singing voice…Yargh, why is it you that can calm me down before I go into something that scares me? I picked the wrong brother…Again =/ Why did I have to discover your beautiful songs before bed tonight?
Today seems like the perfect time to write about “The Sandman” mainly because we are taking care of my Aunties dog and he has developed this new little habit of crying really loudly at 5am every single morning. The night before he came here I didn’t get a good night sleep either, so I have been trying to make up for it and it’s just not happening.
Also I apologise right now if my spelling and grammar is shot to pieces, my brain is just “done in”.
The Sandman comes from the North and Central European folklore and he is supposed to bring good dream, helping you to fall asleep by sprinkling magical sand onto and into your eyes. The eye sleep that you wake up with the next morning was supposed to be proof that the Sandman has done his job.
Not this Sandman…but it’s a really good song all the same.
