This bead (suggested by Daniel Burstein) was inspired by the poet Rives who gave an amazing Ted Talk about how 4AM is used in songs, films, poems, Giacometti sculpture. As he puts it "for a time that I find placid, four in the morning sure does get a lot of bad press." But I find this fascinating - and thought we could create a bead to explore the evolution of its use from moments of inspiration, to exasperation, to loneliness. I'm putting this in the ideas category - but any type of audio/video is welcome - film, comedy, music, art, etc.

Rives has built a nice site to collect 4am references called fourinthemorning.com.

Frank Sinatra, “In the Wee Small Hours”

A bit of a cheat on the bead theme, as “wee small” could also be 2 a.m. or 6 a.m., but the sorrowful longing for Ava feels very 4 a.m. in this instance. As Bruno Kirby says in “This Is Spinal Tap”: “When you’ve loved and lost like Frank has, then you know what life’s all about.”
