THE TIMES

I made these drawings when I got home at 2.30 last night. The taxi driver decided he didn't want to drive on the dirt road where my house is so I had to walk for a while. It was so dark, and weird and, kind of nice.

My friends and I have this saying that is like "It was a good time" but it can be any kind of thing like "It was an interesting time" or a awkward time, a true time, a dry time, a warm time, a crazy time, a scary time, a fur coat time, etc, etc. The phrase was originally coined by our friend Grace and it's just totally taken off. Anyway last night was a seriously out of control time, a weird time, a bad time, and a good time. That Dickens' quote that's like "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" also came to mind when I was walking in the pitch dark up to my house.

I now know that it is possible for 'the times' to merge and become hybrid times, it can be a bad time and a good time at the same time. In these times, all one can do is listen to the Beatles, switch on the fairy lights in your room and draw until 4am, then get up, go to work and face the day.
