Sometimes, the grinding to a halt can surprise. The body does not realize how tired it is until it comes to rest, and then it fights to remain there with all its weary power. It’s better not to struggle. It’s better to give in, allow fog to permeate the brain and muffle the sounds of the world.
There will be a morning when it makes sense to wake up early again. Until then, let the thrum of the heart set the pace, let sleep come when the light fades, and let thoughts be easy upon the head.
