Effie’s Dream Notes

Effie keeps a notepad @ her bedside w/ the intention of recording her dreams while they are still fresh.  It was a challenge to remember about it when she first began. But, after nearly a decade, she did it involuntarily, it was a natural bodily function.

Like

Blinking.

She had to remind herself just as much as she had to remind her heart to beat.

She records whatever seems relevant in that boundary dynamic of sleepfulness and waking.

Unsleeping;

she does it w/o intending to do it. Reading back thru what she wrote, it was as tough as though

it came from a stranger’s pen

is some other than her own pen.

is not.

Many times, recently, her notes were statements of facts; assertions of knowledge gleamed from some ungnown authority. At first, it was always descriptions of the dream itself.

Now, it was only the revelations reaped in the dreamscape.

The most recent revelation.

Effie is Emory. Emory was Effie. That was before Effie graduated high-school

and Emory went to college.

I am fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer. With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I am excited to share. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.
