It might seem odd, but although I'm only 3 posts in the title needs to change - the goblinzzzzz says zzzzz to me, and we don't want anything associated with sleep.

It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s something rather wonderful.

It hasn’t happened lately, and I think perhaps that’s because I’ve thought about it a little too much; it’s not a thing to think about, it’s a thing to allow to happen, and to be grateful for when it does.
