The edge of sleep

We must learn to reawaken and keep
ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids,
but by an infinite expectation of dawn.
-- Henry David Thoreau

What mechanical aids would one use to keep awake? Toothpicks for the eyelids? I ask because I'm up, I missed the dawn, but I'm seriously considering going back to bed.

I LOVE Thoreau!

I'm going to have to remember this...cause some days my expectations are pretty darn low.
