"I always lived in big cities, Moscow at first and now in Chicago. The life never stops here, day or night there is always something going on; one just needs to learn to stop and start listening. I was imagining what would one of the city-dwellers hear or feel during a typical sleepless night sometimes between 11 pm and 3 am. Rockin’: someone is practicing rock guitar late at night; will he/she ever stop? Different colors of the night: strange sounds and dreams floating around; is it an early dawn or lights of a police car? In Blue: loathing over broken dreams? Stop crying! It’s almost a dawn and its time for a coffee; the raising sun makes the coming day looking good!"
