Quiet Time: Let's Have A Nap!

REPORT DETAIL

This was a chance to slow down, not talk and maybe take a snooze.

I took this session to Snail, which seemed to be the slowest and therefore most appropriate space to use. At first, I thought I'd need to move Snail to some other, more cosy, nap-worthy position in the building. But as I sat quietly and waited for co-nappers I realised that there was something good in trying to create a bubble of quiet space on the edge of the Rep's foyer.

So I made a sign that said:

=============
3pm to 4.30

Quiet time: napping optional

Just join me. No need to say “Hello” or “Goodbye”
==============

I also got my coat because it was a bit chilly and I used that as a blankie and closed my eyes.

There were sessions going on around me and people were walking in and out of the foyer but I kept quiet and kept my eyes mostly shut. I focused on my breathing and stuck with it for an hour and a bit only opening my eyes now and then. I watched all sorts of images float through my mind in relation to the things I was hearing, both conversations and the click-clack of winter boots.

When I did look there was invariably someone walking past grinning at me, which is nice.

Thank you to Lisa who came towards the end and obeyed the rules.
