A gruelingly long day after only three hours of sleep: awake awake awake, from 2am on....
But what woke me up was this stunner of a dream:
There was something afloat in the air beside me, smaller than a hummingbird,
slightly larger than a Western Damselfly,
and glowing, but neither bird nor insect. Although it was clear that it was genderless, it exhibited a decidedly feminine anima (yes, that might be redundant). I was dumbstruck with fascination, clearly agog, enthralled with its other-worldliness and the abundance of benevolence emanating from its presence.
It spoke: "I used to be human."
I said "I want to know everything about you...."
It hesitated, lingered, said "I'm going to change again soon."
Early to bed.
Sleep deprivation is the cruelest of states.
