What Are You In To?

4 a.m. // Four a.m. is the hour I am least likely to be up and out and observing sharply. It is an hour for sleepwalking and hazy minds. To engage the residents of four a.m. with a clear-eyed 10 a.m. voice is to speak nonsense. Better to let the dream state unfold. The sun will rise soon enough.

One of 24 posts inspired by Half/Life, which remains on view at H-Space in Washington, DC indefinitely (as of this posting). Contact Erik to schedule a visit. Paintings and zine on sale now in the Future Cartographic shop.
