Am I Visiting An Alternate Reality?
Once again, I find myself visiting an alternate reality.
I’ve had vivid and outrageous dreams almost nightly, since I was a child. I have been accused, of being a daydreamer, as well. Perhaps, this should not be so surprising, since I have always had an active imagination. For someone like me, the line between fantasy and reality has always been a little "blurred".
I know that many people struggle to remember their dreams but that has never been a problem for me. I can recall most of mine, without any trouble at all. In fact, I can remember some of the most interesting ones (going back several years), even down to the smallest details.
Over time, I have even learned to manipulate and take an active part in some of my dreams. It is a technique that is useful for getting out of nightmares, or guiding the dream to a desired outcome. I have often wondered, if there’s any one else who can do this.
Having such extraordinary dreams has been a bit of a blessing, as far as I am concerned. They have given me plenty of topics for conversation and they have contributed a fair amount of interesting material, for writing stories. Sometimes, I even hear music and I am inspired to write a song!
After all this time, I have been contemplating the possibility that my dreams are tying to tell me something. As intense as they are; they have never really been prophetic, or anything like that. I have never predicted future events, or had a conversation with the dead. So for me, they have been nothing more than a divine inspiration to create.
Hopefully, it is enough.
