and then it occurred to me that sleep can be redefined. there are ways to make sleep into something voluminous and profound and constructive, something consequential and transforming. it doesn’t have to be downtime. it can be 8 hours of work of another kind. the liver needs it, needs you to replenish it, but you have to show up for it by sleeping or else you will miss it. you cannot afford to neglect the liver.
sleep is not something to be belittled or discarded. it can be the antidote to everything. sleep lost cannot be regained, but that’s why it is urgent. and i am late!
