A Time of Sleeping; and Out of Mourning, Play Summary

In the chapter, "A Time of Sleeping," Jensen writes about his journey as he learns to live with Crohn's. He writes that he has learned from his disease that he can't attempt to control his emotions or they will kill him. He then uses the story of briar rose to describe the way that hopefully society will have the same story of awakening that the princess in the story did.

In his chapter, "Out of Mourning, Play," Jensen includes in his book references to the idea that the animals and plants of the world have sometimes played with him. This is a sort of proof that the world also has a sense of humor and a sign that he also, should play, even in his times of sadness.
