To sleep perchance to live.
To have all the experiences that daily Waking Life restricts us from.
To travel to places we cannot afford and that the society will not let us.
To love people we will never get the chance to love because they do not love us.
To hate them with lawless passion.
To rekindle friendships with friends long gone.
To have long-lasting meaningful conversations with the Dead.
To kindle friendships with the Unborn.
To sleep perchance to really live, and make life worth living.
It escapes the daily doldrums and sometimes it’s so much sweeter without the pain, without the discomfort or the embarrassment.
Perchance sleeping isn’t really sleeping at all.
For what is this Waking Life?
Stinking odors from the trash that needs to be taken out, again. The pots and pans on the stove with leftover food in them rotting with more stink. The dishes now need to be washed.
The bug crawling across your chest.
The aching knees that remind you of things falling to pieces.
The Daily Grind of going to a workplace to barely afford your lifestyle no matter how much money they ever give you.
Twenty thousand, fifty thousand, one million, you’ll spend it all. You’ll spend it on everything! You’ll need more. You’ll always run out!
What is daily life?
What is awake?
Is this awake?
Or is that awake?
To sleep is sometimes to be more awake than the zombies I see going about their daily lives.
They’re sleepwalking all day long.
Perchance to sleep may be better than perchance to wake. Dreams are a glory of which we are able to live through them.
You may never fly with those knees but you will soar in your dreams.
You may never love or be loved with what’s in the daily mirror, but you can have it all in Dream Land.
He’ll find you attractive there.
She’ll think you’re irresistible there.
You’ll never fall short in the sack while dreaming in the sack.
You get what you want, you experience pleasures and pain that you never would get the opportunity to otherwise.
You can soar and you can sink in the dreams.
Perchance we’ll see you there when you’re done sleepwalking all day.
