Sleeping. We spend a third of our lives doing it, and yet we have to learn how, and some of us still have trouble with it after many years. Some sleep scientists believe most of us are getting 6 hours of sleep a night, when we actually need 8 or 10. Sleep experts say the key to getting to sleep is to have a routine, a set of behaviors practiced faithfully every night to "wind you down" and lead you into dreamland. Some suggested activities are stretching exercises to relax tension, drinking hot caffeine-free tea, or luxuriating in a warm bath.

With nursing behind me, I feel like it's time to get back in shape. Not only do I have more time, but less physical restraints. And while breastfeeding somehow put me back at my high school (!) weight, I feel very far from fit. This was evidenced on a recent run in which I was winded after less than a mile. I'm not proud of this, but it's the reality of the situation. Perhaps my playlist should have served as a warning to my condition. When I selected "Most Played" on my iPod, I expected to be greeted by my high-energy, guilty-pleasure workout favorites like Britney, Enrique Iglesias and Salt N Peppa.

Look in the dictionary, and what you'll learn about lullabies i only half the story. "A soothing song to put a child to sleep," is the way the Oxford American Dictionary defines it, and while that makes for a fairly apt description of what a lullaby does, it says nothing of what such songs are about. In other words, it sees the lullaby as being all form, with negligible content.True, some lullabies do offer more melody than meaning. "Brahms' Lullaby" is a perfect example, a tune so functional and familiar it hardly needs words to get its go-to-sleep message across.

Seated at a downtown coffee shop last week, Victoria Vox quickly noticed the table was wobbly and uneven. Rather than ignore the minor nuisance, the 34-year-old singer-songwriter took the newspaper she walked in with, folded up a few pages and stuck it under the table's leg. She punctuated the correction with a shrug. "I fix things," Vox said nonchalantly. Born Victoria Davitt, Vox's do-it-herself mentality has served her well since May 2003, when she quit her managerial job at New York & Company in the mall of her hometown, Green Bay, Wis. Since then, music has been her only career.

The birth of her first child highlighted two conflicts for Kristen Hughes: There was no place nearby to find high-end baby furniture to create the nursery of her dreams, and few employers would accommodate the marketing professional with a part-time job that would allow her to continue to spend time with her son. Now six months into her second pregnancy, Hughes believes she has found a solution to both those concerns by opening her own baby-furniture store,...

The high point of the recital given by guitarist Eliot Fisk and flutist Paula Robison in Shriver Hall Sunday evening came in the "Mountain Songs" of the American composer Robert Beaser. Beaser and Fisk have been friends since their undergraduate days at Yale, more than 20 years ago, and the guitarist, along with Robison, commissioned the work in 1984.The "Mountain Songs" consist of adaptations of eight popular folk tunes -- such as the familiar ballad "Barbara Allen" and the almost equally well-known lullaby "Hush-You-Bye" -- that came to this country with the Scots-Irish immigrants who settled the Appalachians.

IN a couple of days, The Sun will print a box that will read, in effect, "Eastern Standard Time returns at 2 a.m. Sunday, giving us back that hour of sleep we lost last spring."Who wants that extra hour of sleep? As Benjamin Franklin wrote in "Poor Richard's Almanack" (1758), "There will be sleeping enough in the grave."I'd like that extra hour to: Feed more hungry people at Our Daily Bread soup kitchen; watch Cal Ripken Jr. fire from deep third base to nip the batter; see my seventh total solar eclipse; hear Victor Borge read "Inflationary Language" at the Meyerhoff and attend a Kabuki performance at the Kennedy Center.

Jewel, who will be performing Tuesday night at the Lyric, became a pop superstar right out of the box; her first studio album, 1995's "Pieces of You," sold 12 million copies in the U.S. alone and spawned three hits, including the chart-topping "You Were Meant For Me." Fans and critics lauded her as the decade's premier singer-songwriter, thanks to her home-grown lyricism, her clear, multi-octave voice and her shy, almost introspective stage presence. But the 21st century has proven difficult to navigate for the 35-year-old Alaska native.

Three songs into the Dixie Chicks' high-energy show at Washington's Verizon Center on Friday night, no-nonsense Natalie Maines, the country trio's lead singer, delivered the anticipated swipe at President Bush. Pointing to her right up in the stands of the packed arena, she said with a smirk, "I'd like to say `Hi' to President Bush's family up there." Already on its feet, the audience erupted with applause, hoots and hollers. The Bushes, of course, were nowhere in sight. But Maines continued: "You guys know how it feels since he spends 50 percent of his time here," an apparent crack at his plentiful vacation time.

Oh, don't you remember, a long time ago When two little babes, their names I don't know Were stolen away one bright summer day And lost in the woods, I've heard people say - Traditional lullaby As a mother, she would sing it to her children. As a child, she would sing it to her pets. And whenever the world came crashing down around her, as it often did for Mary Leona Gage, she would sing it to herself. Growing up in the Piney Woods of east Texas, her friends were mostly imaginary or four-legged - fairies, "weed people" and wildlife.

When Alice McGill was growing up in North Carolina, her mother began each morning with an earnest prayer: "Lord, it's me. I come before you, this mornin', knee bent and body bowed, beggin' for You to hold my little chillun in the hollow of Your hand." Those words helped inspire McGill's latest book, "In the Hollow of Your Hand: Slave Lullabies," a collection of 13 songs accompanied by a compact disc on which McGill sings. For McGill, a former Towson State University teacher, the songs are as much about African-American history as they are about family tradition.
