Still wanting to find sleep eh? You must understand that you only ever cease to feel tired once you have allowed yourself to truly wake up.

March 12th, 2014, 5pm

It was 13°C with nil significant cloud. The breeze was gentle.

“Sleep? The entire human race is asleep. What I am offering you is deliverance from the somnambulance that wraps itself around you like a cowl and keeps you from fully living the life you were born to live as you drift half conscious through this world. There’s so much more Christopher, and you know it, have known it, for many years - your tiredness comes from too much sleep rather than not enough sleep - time to wake up - fully.”

He was right of course. I did know it. Indeed I have known it for many years, as many years as I have memory of, far back into my childhood. In fact, I suspect I was born awake and somehow, I don’t know how, I have fallen deeper and deeper into a sleep that has robbed me of all that I instinctively knew from birth and through my childhood.

David Wade, Aafke and Sanna said thanks.
