Summer, ah to sleep perhaps to dream

Summer set lip to earth’s bosom bare, And left the flushed print in a poppy there. ~ Francis Thompson

imageJust a quick post to remind my fav peeps that Summer has arrived. I saw this article by Nancy Shute on NPR and thought, what nice timing. “Why Hammocks Make Sleep Easier, Deeper”.

“”We were basically trying to find a scientific demonstration of this notion of rocking to sleep,” Michel Muehlethaler, a professor of neuroscience who conducted the research with Schwartz, tells Shots. The fact that the brain waves changed so much, he says, was “totally unexpected.” The results were published in the journal Current Biology.”

In my book an added bonus; the dawgly probably couldn’t jump on a hammock with me the way she does in my bed and on the couch.
