Just an abstract page in micron pen.
Because the Night
The back cover of my ‘sleepless’ molie; I’ve had these lyrics stuck in my head for the past several days. In 1978 Patti Smith recorded a song called ‘Because the Night.’ The song was written and recorded originally by Bruce Springsteen but he didn’t include it on ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town,’ the album he was working on at the time (in the studio next door to where Patti Smith was recording, which is how she was introduced to it). Springtseen just released an album of some of his ‘lost’ work from the Darkness sessions and I’ve had it stuck in my head since I heard it yesterday. It seemed like a fitting last note to my ‘sleepless’ journey.
At Road’s End
This is the last page of my ‘sleepless’ molie; my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project: 2011 is now finished (unless I do something creative to the back cover) and ready to be sent back. It’s been quite a journey over these last six months (almost exactly to the day, I started working on it on June 1) and I’ve really enjoyed the challenge.
Dreams of Endless Sky
