When the prompt of Night appeared I felt a sense of Deja Vu. Last year I made a quilt to enter into the SAQA Dusk to Dawn Exhibition and was thrilled when it was accepted.
It is called 'Another Long Night' because I don't sleep. I lie awake for hours most nights wasting valuable sleeping time worrying about the most ridiculous things. In the morning when I am bleary eyes and tired, I can't believe I wasted all those good sleeping hours on such things that wouldn't occupy my mind for seconds in the cold light of day.
So, having made my Night quilt already I need to take a different track but I am still focussed on my apparent inability to get a good night's sleep.
I have been looking at quotes about insomnia of which some are deep and meaningful and some are just downright silly.
I have also been looking at images of sleep patterns which appeal to me more.
This is a regular sleep pattern This is an irregular one
So, I know I am running out of time because I have been away for most of this creative period. I am only just getting over jet lag too which doesn't help.
