As we awaken, all of who we thought we were begins to fade away with the dream. The intense feelings, the complete absorption about the storyline, the strange-yet-familiar characters all begin to fade.
Yet in that middle place, in the stretch of existence that lies between the dreamstate and the awakened state, there is confusion. Which reality is real? What's happening... oh, no!.. the dream is fading. Where is it going? Who am I? Where am I? I think I'm in bed. I feel my bed. Wait! What day is it? What DAY is it... think, think... I think it's Wednesday.
Is is Wednesday? All day I drift in and out of the knowing of the day. I only know it is TODAY, and that's good enough.
In my daily activities, I feel myself fading with the dream, and sometimes it feels like I'm crashing!
