#130 - Chess

A mystical tale about an old man living in the woods who builds a chess set that changes his life.

Thank you for all of your well wishes, good vibes and rain dances! We just had our first rain of the season this week. I took a couple pictures and a short video as the rain was tapering off. You can see that and more about life up here on the mountain on the blog at

This week's story was written by a listener from Canada named Kerri Coombs. You can find out more about her and her work at Thank you so much for sharing this story with us, Kerri. 

If you like the podcast, please leave a review. It really does help other people find it.

When you support the podcast for as little as $3 a month, you'll get some perks to help you fall deeply asleep, including the podcast a day earlier without any ads. You'll also be helping me realize my dream of helping more people get better sleep at night and more peace during the day. :)

You can also get a shareable audiobook of the longer books I read on Listen To Sleep Plus. It's another way to support the podcast and get some extra bedtime stories without a monthly subscription. Each one is available to own for just $5.50 as chapterized mp3s that will play on any MP3 player.

Thank you for listening.💜
