The Blue Period -

"Blue Girl #3"

Once again, certain lyrics from old, old songs appear in my mind, then disappear, like smoke. That same sort of smokey feeling inhabits the pale, cloudy background of this piece and a Ray Davies classic provided the soundtrack while toiling away. Almost dreamlike for me, the words are a mantra that work their magic equally for the lovestruck and the heartbroken: "the only time I feel alright is by your side." Pass the bourbon, please.
