    "You know, all this talk we are talking? It's like the sunshine and the rain. It's present or not, but when it is present it soaks and warms and disappears. Nevertheless, the nourishing effect of it lasts and shows continually."

One Stormy Night

Longer, and even more lyrical! Though I enjoy each and every story, whatever its length. I’ve listened to all of them multiple times. So exciting to see a new one posted. Keep them coming Seymour!

Waiting ....

I look forward to every new episode! The gentle soothing voice and intriguing stories lull me to sleep. Many times I listen for several nights willing myself to stay awake until the end and eventually listen to the podcast again in the morning to make sure I hear the story to the end. No other Podcast of short bedtime stories match these for brining me contentment and help in going beyond the “borders of sleep.”
