Sanity

What is insanity but the inability to distinguish dreams and nightmares from reality?

Me. Dec 2019.

I’ve given a lot of thought to this, because there are some mornings when after I awake there is a short period in which I need to remind myself where I am, and convince myself that I really am alone. Frequently, I’d rather return to the dream. But even in dreams one can never go back. I have found that this new dose of Pregabalin painkiller combined with sufficient irish whisky blurs the line between reality and alternity. Beyond is Possibility. Why do I see it now? Where was it before?

It makes me ponder the meaning of CHR42.

Is the Answer really a Question?

So I ask again; am I sane?

Is this reality? Really?

Why?

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

One thought on “Sanity”

  1. I have had many dreams which seemed, while I was in them and afterward, far more real, vivid, complete than this everyday world does.
    Since I was pre-teen I have seen an Auckland that is not, quite, the Auckland that I am living in at the moment.
    Different geography, buildings, climate. Many of them very detailed and sensible. Some I have written down, somewhere in all that paper.
    One other series is me in a joyful marriage with a woman that I love with an intensity unknown in this life.
    Both are easily dismissable.
    But I do sometimes wonder how real this very unlikely life is.
