Most studies that we hear about on the news or the radio, in reference to sleep, tells us that we are not getting enough of it. We are not sleeping like we should. It seems that there has been a huge wave of bed makers. From sleep numbers to memory foam, to the stuff they use for the astronauts. It all seems great, but it all seems expensive too. I have had a collection of waterbeds throughout the years. I remember back in the day when my older brother first got his waterbed. It was new, it was the thing, it was hip. You could change the temperature, you could adjust the softness, and well, it was a waterbed. Is there anything really much softer than water? Is there anything more comfortable than water? They are hard questions to answer, and even more so, we probably will never really know. But as one who has had a waterbed I feel that they are the past, and the future.
If you are like me, on an observational level, you see that there are cycles of things. Things come and things go. Things come back, and things stick around. Waterbeds will be one of those types of cycle products, I think. A classic never dies. In this case, these classics will never run dry.
