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.

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.
