When I woke this morning this was the first thing I thought “and the answer is?” Well I’d know, or I’d hope to know, if I knew what the bloody question was…
Was this as a result of some weird dream carousing around in an idle mind? and that raised my next thought, why can I no longer remember all my dreams?
There were those, in my younger days, that remained so vividly in my mind I was convinced it was not a dream, but had actually happened. So why now do they no longer stay with me?
Old John Lennon’s saying “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.” Had me thinking that I was living as one and have now forgotten how.
But the old Edgar Allan Poe (yep I can call him old, he died in 1849, although he was only 40, does this make him old then?) lost my train of thought now………. oh yes he said “All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
What the hell was he talking about? When I see a pretty woman is she nothing more than a dream within a dream? Boy I’d love to see some of them, make a guest appearance in my dreams…
But he does redeem himself with the great saying “Those who dream by day are cognisant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.” Oh boy am I a day dreamer, and not the only one, I hope some day you’ll join us, and the whole world will be as one. Now how the hell did John Lennon get back into my post with his song “Imagine”?
But to end this gobbledygook of today, here the words of the Everly Brothers song that I sang unsuccessfully to so many girls so long ago….
“When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream”
Yes and they always told me to keep on dreaming, that would be the closest I would ever get to them… If they could only see me now, they would regret those words of so long ago…
