Tracy & Deano Video Art 1

Hide Your Nuts!

Well, that was not a good night of sleep. Insomnia knocked at my door, overnight, and I seem to have let it in. This time, I can account for it. This was my own fault, for I went to bed earlier than usual and forgot to take my last dose of medications; including those which…
