Slumber with a Key

21 Mar

Need to get those creative juices flowing? I read on Art of Manliness, that if you wake yourself the moment you enter the sleep zone, it allows an unbridled flow of creative energy to surge forth.

This is what Dali termed ‘Slumber with a Key’, one of his fifty secrets of magic craftmanship. Dali’s approach was to nap on a chair with a key between his fingers. The moment he fell asleep, the loud clang of the key dropping against a plate placed under his chair would startle him awake. Apparently, this allowed him to tap on the realm between one’s conscious and subconscious.

It’s definitely worth a try, since it also gives me an excuse to take more naps.
