Sleep is coercion.

I know I need to be coerced to sleep. I'm never tired until 5 in the morning it seems.

I like the typography at the bottom, fading out with subtlety. The long string of z's could have used a wider kerning between letters though (imho) Otherwise, I think it's great. The soft palette works well for this.

Thanks for the (as usual :)) good critique, human-powered. You make a good point regarding the spacing between the "z"s in the string... I could have made it a little more open that way. It was the first time I've really dabbled in such a "small" style, so your feedback is very helpful. :thanks:

It's a pain that we humans seem to need frequent recharges as such... though I do love sleep, myself. :D

You're welcome. :)

Lately (for the past year) I've had nightmares. Not the kind that make me wake up screaming in a sweat (although once I moaned like a wounded moose :D ), they're best described as a slow, subtle poisoning of my mind. It's leaving me furious. I go to sleep wide awake, and awaken exhausted. I feel like such a night owl. But it's such a challenge due to the constraints of daily life. I used to love sleeping, now it's just another chore.

I think I've spent my entire spring break vacation SLEEPING!
