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.

Richard Buckner - 4am
Don MacKinnon

It's 4am and I'm awake again

"Should I like a little and dream away."

Yes, I'm a fanatic about Buckner. His best songs enact something some how more structured than poetry and evocative than stories or films. This is one of those songs.

I looked inside, the ring we wear
And I read myself to sleep
I caught myself, so captured there
Deep inside those cavern eyes.
