  1. what a sad poem and what a sad song. As always, I think and say what a great art and what a sad reality when someone has to live this. For all those who live this sad poems, continue your art like this, but bring out your dreams and live them, you can do it all and you are the people, who are missing in reality!

    1. Thank you for your interesting comment! “What a great art… when someone has to live like this”, that is a really intriguing thing to say.
      This is a creative writing piece and I was inspired by the fairy door in our garden, and this song, and these are the words that just kind of popped out late last night. I’m not completely sure about everything swirling in my sub conscious mind πŸ™‚
      But thank you for reading and commenting.

      1. you are welcome! I try to look at everything I read, hear and see from a variety of different perspectives. One of course, the artistic aspect, which is usually overpowered in its own way in contrast to reality. However, I’m also sure that these feelings are also true feelings that people feel. This is probably the reason why I have always have to snot and water howling with every sad movie. It is hard for me to keep reality and fantasy apart. Doors are painted red because everyone is welcome. That’s how it is.

    1. Yes, I really like your thinking Davy. I was going to write more, some of it along those lines actually, but sometimes I just really like keeping it spare, and loading it with implication instead πŸ™‚ you said that part perfectly!
      And thank you so much!

        1. haha I don’t like to think of it as “work” Davy! More like, let’s hold hands and go on an adventure or something. I don’t want to lose that childlike curiosity, well not until I reach something in my mind that freaks me out a little. Then it’s, “turn back, turn back!” lol.

        1. I hardly ever sleep for long stretches either, Gina. I have read a number of different things about it, one study suggested that people who don’t recall dreams don’t have enough vitamin B. I thought that was interesting. Another book I read said that dreaming is like a pruning process for your brain, where the things in your subconscious are brought into your conscious mind so you can decide if it is something you want to keep or discard. And as dreaming is symbolic, it is all about the particular emotion it stirs, and not what is happening literally.
          I don’t always dream, but I do tend to rather than not, and it is normally pretty adventurous. One time I fell asleep driving…only for a couple of seconds fortunately, but in that time I had a dream! Another time I fainted at a bus stop when my blood sugar was low, I was only out for a few seconds, but I dreamt in that time! I am not sure what that means exactly haha

          1. a most exciting discourse! you must be very attuned to your subconscious to dream even in the split second. I have had premonition dreams. the most recent was waking with a feeling my friend’s dad was injured. miles away his dad had actually had a bad fall. that was spooky. but I never remember details just a feeling. maybe I need to add vit B to my list! and you best keep some snacks in your bag, no fainting spells ok. I do mentally block a lot of hurt and maybe that’s another reason for no specific dreams. I already filtered them out.

            1. That is interesting Gina. I have had a couple of premonition dreams too, but nothing recently. And yes, I do try to manage the sugar thing now, haha thanks for your concern ❀
              I wonder about the blocking of hurt…that could be an interesting chat via email maybe? πŸ™‚

  2. I agree with Singledust πŸ™‚ a great idea, Vanessa: we have our own colors and dreams, and they go to together. πŸ’™ Now, where’s my nerd face? πŸ€“ As far as I know from listening to stacks of sleep EEGs, we all have deep sleep and shallow REM sleep where we dream, but often we don’t remember. I’ve found meditation helps me with the remembering. If we dream all night, it might be a sign we’re not getting enough deep sleep. I use the dreams for my writing anyway so I don’t care. πŸ€“ PS, yes, great avatar.πŸ’š

    1. Yes, Steve, I believe that, I mean I have never been a particularly deep sleeper and it has been the cause of some of my health problems. I do actually remember the one night I had a really good sleep, and I didn’t have any of my issues the following day. It was remarkable. I am on a constant quest to sleep better.
      And thank you for the kind compliment…and the geeky faces! ha! πŸ’™πŸ’š

      1. Hi Singledust, fascinating discussion you two had. I did read that dreams are a kind of pruning or tidying process that helps us greatly when we’re awake, and I understand it happens ‘automatically’ during our periods of REM sleep. Even animals dream so it makes sense.

        The sleep rhythms happen in very slow cycles, several in a night. Unless I put a set of electrodes on your head (joke) I can’t be sure, but I suspect you have the same pattern, so maybe you’re not remembering.

        As we wake, what’s called our hypnosis (or consciousness) level rises. At intermediate points we can be awake but still not really “recording” memories. I’ve found telling myself I want to remember and running through the dreams helps. Salvador Dali organised to have someone wake him with a bucket of cold water to remember, but I’m not recommending that.

        Sorry for the boring technical. πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€ πŸ€“ (emoji for Vanessa)

        1. if you put electrodes to my head you’d probably just get white noise or blank vistas! I am curious why I can’t recall dreams as its evident most people do dream and I am people….as I said to Vanessa I tend to block out a lot of things that trouble or hurt me, in the process I might be blocking out good emotions too. I do wake most days unsure what day it is, in a panic till I tell myself to calm down and think. what do you mean running through dreams? Vanessa apologies for clogging up your comment box!πŸ™

          1. Well, I’m going to write this as if it’s true; some of it is my personal experience, and some of it is probably nonsense (sorry, don’t know which is which πŸ’ ).

            β€œWaking up” is a process taking you from REM sleep with dreams to fully awake. It might be fast (the bucket of water, dreams remembered) or it might be gradual. I imagine your fear about not knowing the day is right near the end.

            A tangent: I’ve been meditating for quite a while, and it’s helped me in many ways. It was difficult when I started because of what came up in meditation, particular hidden thought bubbles. Even though I’d been taught to let them pass by and drift away, it wasn’t easy. Very rarely on waking up I’ve experienced floating in the blue, not even knowing who I was, and found it absolutely magical. I suspect meditation helped me remember the experience.

            The brain has different kinds of memory, kind of temporary and permanent. At a certain waking stage your dreams are in temporary memory, but unless you run through them consciously to put them in permanent memory they’ll evaporate and you’ll never even know they were there. I did it this morning, then I got dressed, had a coffee or five, typed one dream into a poem, thought β€œthis is terrible” and deleted it. 😜

            PS: Every nerd likes to talk about their nerd things, so my pleasure, no apology necessary. πŸ€–
