Have you ever woken up in a dream and realized that you’re still asleep? Have you ever been convinced that you were awake only to find that were still in a dream? Have you dreamt of a future that never existed? What about about a past that never happened?
Last night I looked up at the moon in the dark night sky and I was utterly shocked when it came into my mind that I’m on a floating ball in space being circled by a moon that I can see only from the light of the sun reflecting off of it. Maybe we don’t look up enough?
Sometimes I need to be reminded just how massive this whole thing is. When I’m scrambling to get to work, driving along, or paying for a soda at the gas station I can often get stuck into my own little tunnel vision life. Do this, do that. Insert laundry, repeat. Buy food, cook food, let the dog out. It’s so monotonous at times.
