Do you dream of things to come?
Friends who share some principle
Identical to yours, who launch
Tours into your wilderness in
Happiness, in fun and tickle you
To suspect that all lives are one.
I do dream of those things. I also dream of those who differ from me. We can calmly discuss our differing opinions and come to understand each other better.
Dear Emma, that is certain. Discussion is a tool of calm reason while arguments are too often ceded to the loudest side.
That's a nice, gentle dinosaur who must be waking up from a happy dream.Love,Janie
Precisely the thought of the doodler when he dood it. Thankyou Janie.
I do not know if this is actually SAD or “normal” or something else….. but for the past few years…. my dreams (or at least the ones I remember) are all reliving memories as if I am watching a film. Your poem, however, is wonderful. PipeTobacco
Prof., I often have dreams recreating real events lately too, but without the tensions or pauses of waking life --like the doodle excludes a pause between present and mesozoic periods.
No, I don't dream of nice things like that. Usually I'm being hunted by the living dead, or some such. What fun!
Dear Tom: The unwelcome dream-visitors you mention are vulnerable to air-freshener. I keep a can handy on the nightstand.
Thank you. It would need to be a very powerful air-freshener; tis the season of farmers' muck-spreading.
Geo, how's the recovery going? Are you indeed 'waking up'? I hope so, the ether badly needs you. I...well, I stumped on that. I don't know how I'm doing. Sometime the hours between 2-4am are taxing, and have portents of doom. If so, fine. Take care, my friend.
I think I quote F. Scott Fitzgerald with "It's always 3 o'clock in the morning in the dark night of the soul." Read that somewhere nearly 60 years ago and remembered it just now, so we're right on schedule. Sometimes I wake then too. Memory returning apace.
Please comment! Stats are just numbers and don't really represent you. I need to read what you think and thank you.
