The Real World

I woke up and saw rain on the window.  It was raining hard. I got up and looked out.  Behind the smudged window was a wide dirt road, wide enough for a 3 lane highway.  How did I get here?  The last thing I remembered was going to sleep in my bed, now I am here on this dirt road?  Cool!  It must be a lucid dream but yet it felt so real!  I was parked on the side of the road in this car I had been sleeping in.  I wondered if I was now stuck in the mud with all this rain.  I got out of the car to look around.  To the left, the road forked and there was another road about half the size of the main road.  Both roads were flat behind me but then suddenly angled steeply upward in front.  I wondered if the rain and mud would make that steep angle troublesome.  Right where the main road began to ascend, there was a big puddle of water and several cars splashed through it on their way down.  None of them got stuck.  I saw no plants or animals around, where was I?  I took a closer look at the vehicles driving by and realized they all looked old style, like Model T Fords and those kinds of very old vehicles.  I decided to get back into my car and get my keys out and lock it so I could look around, but as I did that, I could feel my consciousness changing. I was pulled back and woke up.

I was in a room.  In front of me was a tall lanky young African American man in casual clothes lounging on a couch joking with me.  His hair was starting to grow out, perhaps in a dreadlock style.  Behind the couch was a large smudged window.  I was standing in the room on an old musty brown carpet.  My head felt weird. I probed my head with my hands and it was covered with thick wooly feeling hair.  The texture felt strange and the feeling was like the hair was clinging to my head.  I wondered if I was African American too.  What was I doing here?  Then I woke up.

In front of me was a rain smudged window.  I heard a loud clicking noise.   A bird was repeatedly flying up and slamming it's claws against the window.  Ah yeah, the bird, it does that sometimes.  I jumped up, grabbed a piece of paper and waved it at the bird, chasing it off.  I was now on my feet, but disoriented.  But this was the real world this time.  I think...

  1. Oooh false awakening nested-lucity. Cool and weird and fascinating all at once.

    I've sometimes wondered if some trigger here (like the rain smudged window) could cause us to sort of tune into little spots of the infinite with a similar pattern.

    Meanwhile a couple of people somewhere in time are still trying to figure out what happened to them for a couple minutes when you were sitting in lol...

  2. I wonder what the smudged window is all about? Symbolic for a fuzzy sort of consciousness, like being able to look through a window but not see clearly? Has it shown up in your dreams before?

  3. I don't recall, but I probably wasn't looking for it either. Even with these, I didn't notice the repeating theme until I started writing the story down and realized I had written 'window,' a lot of times! ;-P

  4. Compared to many other watches out there Panerai watches are simple, but the devil is in the polish and the details. The refined designs are flattering to the wearer and function well as timepieces. Replica Panerai watches smooth sides of the square Santos are enhanced by screws on the rubber coated black bezel and on the segmented rubber strap.My personal favorite line in the Replica Panerai Watches collection is the Santos. The Replica Panerai Watches100 XL is their larger version of the watch, the standard model is a bit small for my tastes.In a route one way, this influence makes a lot of sense - the purpose of both sets of images is to create striking pictures that put Valentino handbags in the centre.
