Listen To Sleep

Slow, quiet stories to help you fall asleep.

#5 - The Tongue-Cut Sparrow

August 3rd, 2019

This Japanese fairy tale by Yei Theodora Ozaki tells a story about kindness, with a few demons thrown in for good measure. Next week, a beautiful, weird, long poem that will totally send you to snoozeville while you try to listen to it. If you want to try listening to the stories without falling asleep, a cup of coffee and setting the playback speed to 1.5x helps.
