Empty Dream Log
Speaking of not being able to write much...

I distinctly remember crawling back into bed last night after a bathroom trip, and mulling over a dream I'd been having. I think I'd only just managed to distinguish the dream from reality, and I thought to myself as I snuggled back under the covers, "I should write this down, post it in my journal. It's interesting, and it would make a really good story."

Then I rolled over and fumbled around for my stuffed bear, admitting reluctantly to myself, "Except that I probably won't remember any of it in the morning."

I was right.

I can have a dream slip out of my head in the morning in the time it talks to pull off the covers and walk to the computer, all of 15 feet away. No matter how hard I try to hold onto it.

It is remarkable how some dreams evaporate from our memories.

And yet, I can still remember "scenes" from certain dreams that I had as a child. And I sometimes have dreams so vivid that they leave a lasting effect against my feelings for or about someone.

The mind is an amazing thing. It's too bad the human race doesn't know how to use them.
