Poet and storyteller Rives cleverly attempts to solve the mystery of the "repeated artistic depiction" of 4 in the morning that pops up in movies, poetry, literature, and music.
Before I ever saw this talk, I had noticed the same thing; I rarely hear a reference to 2:00, 3:00 or 5:00 in the morning as the most remote, worst possible time of day, the time of day when desperate people lie awake thinking of fried pork chops or stay up to work on inaugural speeches. So when I came across the presentation, I was elated! I'm not the only one who thinks there's a conspiracy or mysterious code behind 4 in the morning!
Or maybe I just need to get more sleep.
