My grandfather once told me that the hours of sleep before midnight were better than those afterwards, so he recommended that I get to bed at a reasonable hour. In order to wake up early in the morning to draw, I try to get to bed before 10:00 P.M. I always thought my grandfather’s suggestion was just some folksy aphorism, but when I go to bed early, I sleep better – go figure. Thanks for the advice, Opa.
P.S. My grandfather’s favorite expression was, “Courtesy costs nothing, gains much.” He was a wise man, and I miss him.
