In Paris I began dreaming [quite by surprise] about a particular person I vaguely know. The dreams gradually became consistent and welcome in my reverie. I had suddenly become aware of someone's presence from very far away and I did not know why [still do not know why]. I don't mean to attach weighty assertions to the thoughts which occur to me as I sleep, but these dreams have managed to direct my attention to a person I had never truly reflected upon. I'm aware enough to know these things rarely garner explanations, but I am so puzzled by myself and the strange gravitation I now feel. While I am tempted to deride my proclivity to attach meaning to potentially meaningless things, I simply can't help it.

  6. sometimes when i wake up from a dream world, i am surprised to find that a person who seemed so close and so real is not there at all.

    and it takes time to recalibrate, to lose that feeling of connection.

  7. Beautiful photos.

    As for the dream...the mind is a funny thing. Maybe someday you'll come across that person, something will happen, and you'll realize why you were dreaming about them all along.

  9. i found your blog today, and i'm in love with it. it's so beautifully written.
    I think we underestimate instinct all of the time, and instinct always has a way of taking us where we need to go. I often give heavy meaning to even the most trivial occurrence, but I think it makes life interesting. And every now and then it works to my advantage. :)

  16. how very odd. i have dreams, sometimes, involving people i haven't spoken to nor seen in years, but they never repeat. perhaps there's some hidden meaning? your subconscious might be trying to tell you something, or remind you of something?

    i love dreams. you should get a dream journal and record things.
