Sleep


Apparently, Salvador Dali used to take a nap while holding a spoon in his hand. As soon as he would drift off into sleep and lose consciousness, the spoon would fall to the floor and make a loud clanging sound. Dali would wake up from the sound with the beginnings of his dream fresh in his mind - and then paint whatever he was dreaming about.

my friends had an art class where their assignment was to draw something as soon as they woke up every morning.

i told myself i would start doing that, but i never did.

i need to motivate. and see you before/after Ireland!
