Sleep

Sleep.

Source of our energy, our creativity, our compassion, our sanity.

And in the buzz and rush of our culture, in our

always-on,

‘but they need me’,

‘I’m so important’,

endless to-do-list,

‘I should’,

‘I ought’,

‘I want’

target-driven,

shame-filled

always-more society

in which we wear our busyness,

and our exhaustion

as badges of honour

perhaps the most undervalued currency of all.
