So…I lucid dream. Most of the time, when I go to sleep I dream. If I make an effort to write them down right away I can get the whole thing out. Unfortunately, I am growing up. So now, when I dream, before I can lucid dream I have to recognize it for a dream. Then I realize the futility of any accomplishment in the dream world and the stresses from the real world start to leak in. This usually causes me to wake up, because I need to write my dissertation. Boring.
However, I also just realized (while awake) that all the demons I have ever fought in the dream world still live in my head…or are buried there I guess. Maybe, I can put away the flying and breathing underwater stuff for now and just go back to demon slaying and bmx riding.
