Escape From the Madness of Sleep

Acrylic on canvas, 18×24″

Well it sure feels like madness anyway. It used to be called “the little death” but I think it’s more accurately a form of nightly insanity. 

Oh I know all the supposed wonderful things about dreams giving you great insight, and lucid dreaming and all, but with rare (very rare) exceptions, my experience has been that sleep (at least the dreaming portion) is a mental state to be escaped quickly and thankfully. 

Not that dreams are always bad, because those are also the rare exceptions. But still, dreams are just nuts in a way I can’t wrap my head around. And honestly, it’s never proved to be worth the effort.

Just my experience, anyway. How ’bout you?
