Waking into sleep

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Lately I am reluctant to sleep. Working late because of both necessity and desire, at 3am I remind myself that tomorrow I’ll need to be rested.

Not long ago I read something that made me want to go into my dreams with open eyes, so to speak. “Dreams and waking life are not consecutive but simultaneous. They exist alongside each other.” Excuse me, what? With my mind still wrapping itself around this idea, that night I dreamed that I called a friend on the phone to tell him the news.

I haven’t asked him if he dreamed that I called. Though I could call right now, when his time zone is mostly awake, and mine is mostly dreaming.

At the same time.
Right now.
