Trying to recharge the batteries yesterday. I went to a coffee shop that stays open until midnight. I was writing and doodling in my sketchpad until they kicked everyone out. I wasn't finished with my thoughts yet, so I went to a bar that stays open until 4am.
I was thinking of evil fairies, or a scary Tinkerbell. Then "Rapture" by Blondie comes on the jukebox. One of the lines was about some monster that starts out eating cars, then people and finally eats guitars. I had an immediate image of Saturn eating his children by Goya meets one of those Hot Rod/ Zap comics looking creatures with stretched out eyes. I think they work almost every time.
