A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest -- and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. Proverbs 6:10-11
So . . . Mr. Sandman is a gangster. He is unarmed, but extremely dangerous, pillaging those who sleep when they should be awake. His thefts go unnoticed, but he leaves his victims in rags. How so? Because he steals things that are hard to quantify: opportunities, adventure, and time. Think about it. What do we really have left when those things are taken away?
