so for what seems like forever I have been having a terrible bout of insomnia...you know the kind where you fall right to sleep because you are so tired, but then wake after about an hour or two and cannot go back to bed.
Now, I blame this pattern on equal parts allergies, panic, too much caffeine, and an imagination that wakes me with stories playing through my head, even at 3:00am.
After a few weeks of this pattern things start to get strange, noises seem both louder and further away, colors are brighter....that bright spring grass can seem almost menacing even during the day.
All that being said....I sort of like it, those hours when it seems no one else in the world is awake and you dream or you think you're dreaming even when you are awake.
Anyway....that's what the pieces posted today are all about, that fine line between awake and asleep, between madness and dreaming.
They will be posted in the shop later today.
