The only way I can sleep through the night is with earbuds in my ears, through which I listen to either the BBC or the CBC via their apps. I do this to silence the chatter in my head and to hear through the constant drainage I have in my ears. It's complicated.
George Nelson the Shelter Beast usually wants to go out at 4A so I let him out. At that point, I change to my local NPR station or one on the east coast because the morning program is already on.
The stories influence my dreams. This morning I was dreaming about female artists. Now I know why.
The story is here, "Portraits of LA's Female Artists Send a Powerful Message: 'You Are Here'"
The artist's website is here.
