A Watery Current
April 23, 2017
Falling asleep is like body surfing. You feel the pull of the wave and let go at a crucial moment to drift on the watery current.
With jet lag, falling asleep is like being pulled under water. You can’t resist. You have no will or energy to fight it.
Eight hours later you rise to the surface like a cork. What a great sleep, you think. You punch the air. ‘Bring it on!’ You look at the clock. You’ve been asleep for 30 minutes.
