“All I know is that while I’m asleep, I’m never afraid, and I have no hopes, no struggles, no glories — and bless the man who invented sleep, a cloak over all human thought, food that drives away hunger, water that banishes thirst, fire that heats up cold, chill that moderates passion, and, finally, universal currency with which all things can be bought, weight and balance that brings the shepherd and the king, the fool and the wise, to the same level. There’s only one bad thing about sleep, as far as I’ve ever heard, and that is that it resembles death, since there’s very little difference between a sleeping man and a corpse.” Sancho Panza

Day 26 of the Great Global Quarantine. During this time I've been outdoors a lot more, primarily because we adopted Addy from the Fredericksburg SPCA at the start of it and secondly because the weather has been very nice on many of these days and it is just a great way to lift the spirit! I've found myself outside every night looking up at the stars because I take Addy out one last time before bed. I feel like the sky is getting clearer and I'm able to see them better. Gazing up at them really makes me appreciate how wondrous this world Earth is! I am really enjoying that time each night so I am thankful that Addy is around to include that into my day now.
