043 – A Sleepy Bedtime Reading – Sailing Alone Around The World

The beginning of a grand adventure often isn’t exciting. The detailed account of rebuilding a ship will help you sleep as the various merits of timbers get discussed and described while slumber creeps up on you.


From ‘Sailing Alone Around The World’ By Joshua Slocum


As I work in the hospitality industry the next few weeks are going to be very busy for me. I won’t be able to do much researching and writing, but I won’t leave you restless. I will have a selection of cold readings for your insomnia cures every week, right on schedule.

    I just wanted to say I’m really enjoying the readings. They work really well. The Star is my favourite so far. I’ll miss the cat naps when they go away so I’d love to see you incorporate readings into your schedule although I love your original stuff too. With the exception of The Devilish Rat, which was just plain creepy, I’ve enjoyed your choices for the cat naps so I’m looking forward to seeing what else you choose for these longer readings.

    I hope you’re not too overworked this holiday season and that you and yours have a great Christmas and here’s to a New Year that brings you closer to your goal of doing this full time.

      Hi Joe.

      Thanks for the feedback. I’m glad you’re enjoying the readings. They seem to be doing quite well generally.

      They will definitely be in regular rotation in the new year. And I’ll try stay away from anything too creepy. 🙂 I wondered about the Devilish Rat, but it was an interesting premise so I decided to risk it.

      And thanks too for your wishes as well as your support this year. It’s meant a lot to me.

      Wishing you all the best.
