In the past, sleep was something that happened out of necessity and pleasure, and that part hasn’t changed. But it happened in the background, in passing, something I wasn’t particularly thinking about.

Newly found this year is that I now have a relationship with sleep. She’s always calling my name, always wanting to spend more time with me, and my with her. Sleep is now something that has to be managed, something I long for, something I think about actively.

In the past sleep was rarely prioritized. It’s not that I wouldn’t get enough, but now it’s a priority. I shape my days to find amounts of sleep and rest, have rearranged my life to become a morning person.

I’ve long thought about having a relationsihp with Lake Superior and the sun. But now it’s also a relatinoship with sleep. And we’re pretty good to each other. Now, I plan dates with sleep and commit to them. I think I’ll nap now, then I’ll be rejuvinated for the remainder of the day.
