Have you every woken up in the wee hours of the night to find that you’re gripped by fears and anxieties that just didn’t exist in the light of day? You can lie there awake in bed, in your comfortable home, maybe even next to a loved one, and find your thoughts circling like persistent vultures. And then the morning rolls around, and it’s almost impossible to recreate the sense of foreboding that existed just a few hours earlier.
Nocturne is produced by Vanessa Lowe.
Thank you to Bec Fary, and the Sleeptalker podcast, for sharing an excerpt of “The Blue Hour” (episode 9). In that episode, Mike Day reads his story “Tears for Fears of the Dark”, originally published in Alien She Zine.
Thank you to Robin Galante. You can find her art, music and writing here. Much of her current work focuses on illustrations of her dreams – they’re amazing!
