Somewhere between the sky and the deep blue sea September 18 2016


I’ve detected a space that floats between the sky and the deep blue sea. Sometimes, that’s where reality resides. But more often, the in-between is the home of dreams.

I often dream at night, of course.  But most of my dreams, visions, ideas and fantasies happen when I am fully awake and aware. 

My dreams are usually colourful, happy, melodic and rich. 

But every story, every life has scary bits. To a reader, it’s good storytelling. To the sleeper, it’s a nightmare. 

So why do I sometimes let the nightmares be my reality and the cheerful, fanciful, glorious bits merely dreams? Am I not the teller of my own story?

From time to time it becomes necessary to peer into the space between the sky and the deep blue sea and see all that I am privileged to experience . . .  joy, love, kindness, beauty . . .   and realize that I am living the dream.
