Awake in a dream

We go to the movies to see something go wrong. We enjoy watching the characters in the movie work things out. If nothing went wrong, there’d be no movie. No laughing. No crying.

“What is the nature of the search?” you ask. Really it is very simple; at least for a fellow like me. So simple that it is easily overlooked. The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life.”  Walker Percy

Lucid dreaming

What I quaintly call “my world” is small, personal and private. It is essentially the same as anyone else’s world, differing only in its details. They are time-bound, these worlds. All we know is what we remember.
