The 35-Second Aha! Moment
"Thinking of that little boy pondering the inevitable and the unknowable, I was even more grateful for a family legacy that taught me, and allowed me to teach him, that not everything has to be useful, not everything has to lead to something more—that sometimes, for no reason and with no purpose, you can just curl up on the couch, feel the soft breeze, and drift into a soft, delicious sleep that leads to nowhere in particular, and back again."
--Author Cathleen Schine, on her family's love of napping and how she passed it on to her son, though he was afraid to go to sleep.
