When I’m not teaching college or managing Sadler House, I write bedtime stories for the Get Sleepy Podcast and the Slumber app. The major purpose of these stories is to help people fall asleep. I originally came to sleepy podcast stories when I started constantly waking in the night. If you’re like me, you wake up and then your mind activates. Then BAM! you can’t go back to sleep.
What are Podcast Bedtime Stories?
Finding the Get Sleepy podcast changed my nights so much for the better. After nearly two years of listening to the stories many times a week, I sent in a writing sample and got hired to write the stories myself! Just last year, I wrote something in the neighborhood of forty stories.
Lighthouses of Maine – Drift Off with History
Among those, I did a series featuring a character who is researching the lighthouses of Maine. In this post, I am sharing links to the four stories in the series. Incorporating a mix of history and travel visualization, they are the perfect way to drift off to sleep. However, I think they’re also a great way to learn about the lighthouses of Maine before you are there in person. Take them on your walk or listen to them while doing chores. I promise you’ll end up knowing more about these historic beacons and your visit will be richer for it.
In case you’re wondering why I chose these four, it’s not because I thought they were the most important or the oldest or the tallest or the most beautiful lighthouses of Maine. Rather, these were lighthouses I loved and they were the lighthouses with some of the best stories to tell. As any love of the lighthouses of Maine knows, you could make twenty more such stories. But I hope you enjoy these.
