Had a seriously difficult time waking up this morning. I was in the middle of a dream where I was in college and the university had just done a whole bunch of modifications including new lockers that were made of extremely insufficient particleboard-- I didn't remember my locker number or my class schedule, and I was extremely sleepy. There was a cool downhill surfing waterfall that looked like a lot of fun.
When I actually woke up, I was still half-stuck in that dream-state. I fell asleep in the shower a couple of times, kind of phasing in and out of the dream. The phasing continued for about an hour, and even now I'm wanting to go sleep more.

There is a caertain dream state where I'm conscious enough to understand that the imagery isn't quite making sense, like I'll recognize one of the bit players as someone from my past and try to strike up a conversation, or I'll try to actually read a book or a headline and it ends up not making any sense at all. I think that's the place that's closest to being awake, and the place that makes dreams more memorable, like when dreams are deeper, the part of your brain that remembers stuff is sleeping.

But I'm also finding the division between being awake and being asleep getting grayer, becoming wide enough that I can actually be in between those states more often than I've ever been. What if some day I never really come out? What if I become a sort of bridge between the world of reality and the world of dreams?

What if some of those things in my dreams begin to bleed over into the real world?
