I’m Flying and I Can’t Get Up!
I awoke, remembering my dream. It was a flying dream, of sorts.
I was in the Superman-approved flying position, my arms properly outstretched, but I was flying too low, skimming just inches above the wet lawn and puddles.
I tried to gain altitude, tried to think myself higher. I’ve done it before. When I hooked-up with a bio-feedback machine I was able to keep the airplane on the monitor at the required altitude, using only the power of concentration.
But, in the dream, I could not get up.
I wondered why I dreamed that dream. What does it mean?
It means get up and drink coffee.
And so I did.
Now, smell these lilacs!
