#180 - Extra Men

A short story from 1918 about a grandmother who helps a troop of soldiers headed to the Great War.


Yesterday Bodhi and I went out for a walk in the Spring rain and I thought about how all the birds and flowers of spring remind me that each day is a new opportunity for change. I made a little video about it, and if you like to see that, it’s on my Tiktok and Instagram. If you'd like to see it, it's up on TikTok at https://www.tiktok.com/@listentosleep or on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/listentosleep/

I very much enjoyed being on Chris Thompson's Unfiltered Friends podcast recently. We talked about how to live a happier life and I answered a lot of questions about what life on the mountain is like. You can find it anywhere you get your podcasts or listen on Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/episode/33WBOEUX8cZzcGyjJtyOe8?si=717e23a6bcfb4f60.

You can read this story (and other classics from the public domain) by downloading it for free at https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/39635.

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.💜
