058 – Deephaven – A Sleepy Bedtime Reading

Times are stressful right now. I’m keeping pandemic references out of the show, but it’s causing a lot of restless nights. But I’ll help you get a good night’s sleep with my droning voice.

This week I’m telling the story of a couple of young women off for a new adventure. Although the excitement hasn’t happened yet. They do spend some time with the local lighthouse keeper’s wife.

045 – A Sleepy Bedtime Reading – The Swampers


Of sleep, psychics and scoundrels

Psychic or charlatan, this story will help you sleep
The paraphernalia of the fortune teller? Are some for real? Maybe, but many are charlatans.

Sleep comes when the mind is unstressed, so let’s wash away the tension with a bedtime story, told in a way that won’t keep you too focused.

Believe what you will about psychics and faith healers, many are not what they seem. But will you find sleep comes for you during the story of what happens to Professor Mortikali as he does some palm and tarot readings. Before getting a visit from a mysterious stranger who turns out to be all too familiar

From ‘The Swampers’ by Hume Nisbet

A note about the stories

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.
