No More Waging War Against Sleep

I love the way Dean puts it, in discussing how he's started going to bed earlier and getting up earlier - a changed relationship with day cycles and sleep:
It’s not the beauty of sunrise, so much in favour with businessmen after that first heart attack. I’m hoping it’s enough to conclude that it’s learning, however late, to think of a day as connected in some way to what went on during the one previous, and what will on the one following, rather than treating one, as I have for years and years, as something to pad with distractions and microscopic achievements until it’s time once more to wage war with sleep.
