An Unlikely Role Model

Hugh Hefner, who’d have thought it?

The old chap has been working from his bed since his heyday, way back in the sixties, was it?  Before laptops – even before cell phones!  I think he had to give dictation…

I think he was onto something.  I love to wake early, my mind is clear, I can look out over the water and ruminate on the day ahead, then eventually I reach for my laptop and ILOVEIT.

Even difficult communications are easier to handle when I have time to compose them, no interruptions and with any luck, coffee to hand.  Pleasant email becomes a joy! Leaning back on my patented pillow-mound (bolster, sham, pillow), bolster-main-388snuggled under the duvet with the door open to the outside world in anything less than a gale, curtains backed with blackout liner to counter the piercingly bright low winter sun, I am simultaneously at rest and alert as any athlete (I tell myself).photo 5

All the advice I have ever read about Getting a Good Night’s Sleep says keep screens out of the bedroom.  I beg to differ.photo 6

    I tend to agree with the advice about screens and bedrooms, but I could deal with absolutely anything against that pillow mound–even my taxes–and especially with those curtains!
