4.24.18

On my way home I watch the water; The rain patters against the shore, And a grey-blue haze erupts, Like a heavy-set cloud seeking friends. Quickly the creature engulfs the land, Consuming buildings which fade As if towering to heaven, And dismembering trees To branchless stumps Inconsiderately cut too high up. The spot before me…

About Vivid & Lucid Dreams

“In lucid dreaming, you are dreaming and know that you are dreaming. A dream becomes lucid when your daytime ‘wake consciousness’ becomes active while you are in a dream- so you are dreaming and know you are dreaming.” “Vivid dreams arise from Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, in which the brain is as active as it…

Babes: A Letter to Daddy

Dear Daddy, Happy Birthday. Is it strange that I still haven’t processed your death as a death, but rather as a long vacation? And I know that isn’t the best thing to do, because it implies that I’ll see you again. But perhaps I will. In this life and maybe the next I will see…
