Where Children Sleep

Yesterday NPR posted a photo gallery from James Mollison’s book Where the Children Sleep.

Dong is 9 years old. He lives in the province of Yunnan in Southwest China, with his parents, sister and grandfather. He shares a room with his sister and parents. They are a poor family who own just enough land to grow their own rice and sugar cane.

The Insomniac — verse

OUR DAYS WITHOUT NUMBER
AND LIGHT EVER BEAMING
NOW NO NEED FOR SLUMBER
NOR LIKEWISE SWEET DREAMING

Cappy Thompson

My new art hero. Now when do I get to Sea-Tac to see this thing?

Also, here is a great excerpt from the film “Dreaming of Spirit Animals: The Glass Art of Cappy Thompson” by Sally Cloninger at Cappy Thompson’s website.
