Stuff happens when you’re not looking and it can be a surprise. I used to hate going to sleep because I lose my sense of Time when asleep. I’m aware of time, disappear, dream and I wake up with NO sense at all of how much time passed.
Ok, it still bothers me. It’s a ridiculous thing to be bothered by. But it does. I know every time I wake up, SOMETHING happened that’s going to affect me when I re enter the time stream and I have to be ready for anything.
So I wake up, puzzle out the metaphors in my dreams if I have them, which takes a few moments lying there and then think: “Ok, what’s waiting for me?”
I’m grateful. Good to be alive and all. But it’s still annoying.
