My Bed: Gateway to Relaxation
On a cool brisk Hawaiian morning, on Schofield Barrack, Oahu three blocks over from the Post Exchange sits a two storey home. On the second floor in the master bedroom is a memory foam bed.

They are like resting you head on an Egyptian quilted bag full of soft white sand. The frame is cherry red wood with three cubby holes build in to the headboard.

I think of how when I open the window I can lay in bed and listen to the ocean. It is like finding a seashell when you are a kid and holding to your ear; you do not know how the sound soothes you but next thing you know you’re drifting into a dream on sugar plums and sweet homemade apple pie....
