Cocoon

I am eighty two and I still like the kids' trick of pulling the covers over my head, raising my knees, and enjoying the little tent, or cave, or cocoon I have made.

The rest of the world, everything else, is outside and you are inside.

They say that Michael Jackson used to like to sleep in a hyperbaric chamber.  Well, no wonder.  What a neat cocoon, away from turmoil, away from everything outside.

In this populous land, there must be some people who set up tents in their bedrooms to sleep inside.  I don't know any, but I understand them, I do.

While in the woods camping alot of my friends like sleeping out side of thier tent, they enjoy watching the stars at night then they fall asleep under them!
Myself, I love being in the tent at night getting my area cozy for good nights sleep . Have a great night now shut those lights off and get some sleep!
