dunst + dreams

.
I had this dream last night.
That I was dreaming.
.
In my dream within a dream I was swimming in creative.
The house I was in - the light was perfect.
The clothes - this beautiful texture and structure.
A weird doll on the bed - quilted out of every
gorgeous fabric I could think of.
.
I kept telling myself to wake up and write these down.
Draw pictures. Color these colors.
Somehow describe them so I wouldn't forget.
.
But I could only get out of one dream.
I was still within the first dream and couldn't seem to wake up.
.
This morning all I remember
is that there were amazing creative things.
That I can't remember.
.
.
Isn't it weird what our minds are capable of.
And won't even let us keep?

I hate when dreams just slip through your fingers when you wake up.

Oh tell me about it!!!!! It's so very frustrating when this happens! I've dreamed of some absolutely amazing music, then as soon as I wake up- memory erased.
Aaaaaaargh!!!
It is really bizarre....makes you wonder just what our brains could be cabable of, but we just don't know how to access certain parts of it yet.... The mind boggles.
Dreams are so damn cool.

Wow that's beautifully written!

I've lost so many wonderful ideas to my dreams. During that hazy half-sleep-half-wake I'd tell myself that the dream would be my next book, and my the time I'd wake up enough to find paper, I'd have forgotten it all and and spend would spend hours desperately trying to grab a hold of the foggy shimmer at the back of my mind that I know was the dream. Of course, it's no use.
Maybe I should look into hypnosis to help, lol!

okay i right it the second time down...
sounds great. dreaming is the most creative thing ever it's so much better than beeing on drugs (okay i don't know it but i thing beeing on drugs is like dreaming without sleep)
