Napping while listening

I got this thing where I feel like need a nap so I lay on the floor where I am not to comfortable to fall dead asleep, turn on the rig and usually fire up radio paradise as they have a good eclectic stream. If a track has a good enough hook I can kinda hang and ride on it in this half in/out state. Really fun. Tonight ,Tomorrow Never Knows comes on. Wow , best ride yet, Ringo’s drums. I guess I never realized how he just keeps that same tom/snare beat going through the entire track without a fill or any change. Totally makes the track for me and so trippy hearing it in a dream like state.


@tooblue you are speaking as if your wife is young girl married you to inherit part of your wealth.

I've dated such lady in the past working as private driver of a very rich and old man...

Retired 8 months now at age 69.  I find music a potent tranquilizer for the soul and and escape from mundane pressures.  I have napping , or falling to sleep  I have been napping, been between the two worlds described by @ghdprentice, or outright falling into a dead sleep since the late 60’s and early 70’s listening to Alison Steel sultry voice discussing and playing classic rock late night on WNEW NY on a pair of Koss Pro 4AAs driven by a Pioneer SX 828.  I rarely made it through her program it hear Flying/Beatles before being in dreamland.  Fond memories of a simpler time. 

I have a custom mix CD of Elton John I play when I go to bed. If I am not asleep by the 5th song I get up and watch TV for a bit.

I retired early when I became financial free of all debt and able to make way more money retired than when working. Should have retired even earlier, you only live once, enjoy it.

if I wake up early and can’t go to sleep, I’ll turn on some tunes and there’s a good chance I fall back to sleep. Jazz and blues can do this. But listening to Dream Theater or other heavy music, I’m up for the duration. If both my wife and I are up trying to sleep, we will put on some Pink Floyd or Alan Parsons on our bedroom system to fall asleep.


Retired at 60 and love it.  Busy as ever.  How did I find the time before. Listening to every record I own and entering it into Discogs.  A multi year process.
