One can only truly appreciate the beauty of sleep, once one is denied it. Well at least that’s what I believe! and I’m sure most bakers, bartenders and construction workers would loudly praise ‘AMEN!’.I will tell you this, roaming the streets with eyeshalf shut at 5:30 in the morning is not a pleasant feeling.
Under a foggy haze, my mind often wonders to the first neanderthals. Did they leave their prehistoric caves before daylight?…. NO, I’m sure they didn’t. Their knowledge of nightly predators and freezing temperatures attains to our now primitive fear of darkness from birth.
But now, with electricity turning night into day our world has transformed into a 24-7 lifestyle. With our growing needs substantially outweighing the hours in a day, we become how ever unnatural it feels dwellers of the night and early mornings.
I guess what I’m truly trying to say is, when given the chance, enjoy sleeping like a sloth!
Even Hemingway agrees….
I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?”
