“sleep ... knits up the raveled sleeve of care... chief nourisher in life’s feast.”
~William Shakespeare. Macbeth. Section 1 - Part C.

(In the play Lady Macbeth tells her husband after he kills the king not to worry – just get some sleep, because the innocent sleep, therefore “sleep knits up the raveled sleeve of care.” )

I hope my little explanation will clear your thought!! Smile

Thanks so much, doon1946. You know how annoying it can be to have these things roaming around in your head, unfulfilled. Now I can move on to more important ventures--such as that Friday afternoon glass of suds! THX!
