In my dreams I have permission
to go places and do things I cannot do
when I am awake. For instance, last night
I went to a picnic in the rain and slush at my daughter’s friend’s house
on the beach at the lake on the far side of the community. I did not
get wet. I was not cold. There were fish four feet long swimming in the water
near the rocks. The umbrella did not work.
I saw it with my own (sleeping) eyes.
Try that when you’re awake.
