It started out almost pleasantly. My voice took on an intimate, husky tone that reminded me of an old nighttime friend from my high school days, Allison Steele. Those of you who lived the New York metro area during the late 60's and 70's might remember her overnight show on WNEW FM. Known also as "The Nightbird," she had a mystical and magical vibe, and always played the coolest music. But, my sexy lady DJ voice wasn't meant to last. By yesterday morning, I was speechless, and when I woke up this morning, the most I could manage was a decidely un-sexy croak. It seems that laryngitis is a close companion of this wretched cold I've been dancing with for the past several weeks. So off to the doctor I went, and was given instructions to stay home for a few days and rest... or else I'll get more and more run down and keep company with this coarse and common cold for the whole winter... The problem is, I really don't like sleeping during the day, and I had already made the bed.
So what did I do? I opened my new moleskine and doodled this lady with flower power. I drew her with a micron pen and then colored her with markers and colored pencils. The background is photoshop. And now, I am going to bed. Goodnight:>
