the name of the dream

broken dream


the chime of my door-bell is loud


was smack-bang in the middle of a vivid dream when a man delivering goods rang the door-bell


the dream was still running for three or four seconds after getting to my feet


i was completely disoriented for those few seconds


it was a mix of the two conscious states


it could be likened to being slapped across the face while relaxed


i felt as though i had been assaulted


whatever the content of the dream was it was broken into pieces


when i tried to recall the dream it went from the memory completely


it was though something had been damaged beyond repair and trying to fix it was like trying to re-assemble a stack of snowflakes in a warm room; the effort of trying to do something brought home the futility of trying to do it

perhaps an essential feature of dreams is that for the dream to serve its purpose it has to be experienced in full

two days in a row that the dreams have not been accessible !
