The Anatomy of a Nap Part 1 - The Pull of Gravity

The best way to get through a very cold, windy, but sunny day is with a good, long nap.  The first part of such a nap is strategic positioning.

It's important to find a cushy spot out of the wind yet still in the sun.  Doorways work well, especially if there is a handy pillow nearby.

You want to angle yourself for maximum sun exposure while still allowing the unibrow to shade one's eyes.  (See, there really is a good reason for the unibrow!)

Proper alignment keeps everything comfy and has the added bonus of allowing the sun to disinfect the bottoms of one's feet.

Once fully settled in, there is plenty of time to slowly drift and let your mind wander.

This can be a good time to ponder some of the deeper mysteries of life.  Such as...why do cats sit and stare at walls?

Eventually, the pull of gravity gets to be overwhelming. 

You don't want to give in too easily though, go very slowly here.  You wouldn't want gravity to think it's always going to win after all...
