Do you often feel empty when you awake?
I mean it’s not something I’m concerned
Perhaps the feeling is a sign of
exhaustion, from the wondrous journey my
mine has been through. Channeling time
and space as hours pass through
Sleep opens up a new world for those that
want to be free. You can do anything.
There are no rules or guidelines. No
obstacles that obscure your creative
I roamed the Pacific with my own
customised boat, I climbed Everest in two
minutes! Even that was difficult in a
dream, I co-hosted a poetry event with
Sylvia Plath and discussed Mad girls love
song as we roamed through France once
the event was over, and I danced the night
away with Kate Bush whilst we gazed into
each other’s eyes as we sung Wuthering
Heights. You can do anything in a
dreamlike state! It’s our own version of
Yet, once we open our eyes and see
the world for what it truly is, this feeling of
ecstasy and our freedom of thought
slowly diminishes. Life is not quite like our
dreams tell us. It’s brutal and unrelenting,
our time becomes numbered and most of
us can’t grasp what we truly want.
So close your eyes and think of all the
things you’d like to do in your thoughts.
When you sleep, think of your heroes,
think about the places you want to visit,
and picture yourself in absolute bliss.
You’re in control. You’re in control.
