You ever dream that you’re falling and what wakes you up is the feeling like you’ve just hit your mattress? It’s disconcerting. Were you floating and fell? Was your consciousness out of your body and pulled hard, back in?
Anyway, that’s kind of how I’m feeling. Like I’ve been pulled to earth and I didn’t even know I was flying.
Yep – that feeling. It’s kinda strange to have a sensation that should require moving but you aren’t.
Add to that that I was somehow convinced by Dennis Quaid’s character in “Dreamscape” [awesome movie, by the way] that if you die in your dream, you die in real life.
So I always feel scared by relieved when I wake up feeling like I’ve safely landed on my mattress.
At least you’re able to be poetic about it.
my dreams regarding falling ardent actually me falling – those dreams are like a Warner Brothers cartoon; I’m inside a hollow log rolling down a steep hill. I jerk awake almost every night prior to deep sleep.
