I awoke prematurely from my slumber at 7am this morning. Sadly, this has been the norm lately - sleep troubles have been plaguing me since Christmas (so what else is new?)

This time was different. Normally I wake up, check the time, curse myself, and fall back asleep. But on this morning, I woke up with a song in my head.

My dreams tend to fall into one of two categories: ones where I'm flying away from something, and ones which would make really awesome cinematographic movies. Sweeping landscapes are accentuated with light (sometimes I dream of the rising and setting sun, sometimes it's the northern lights ... in every case, it's a friggin' breathtaking view).

Last night was a dream of the latter. Somehow I woke up, and the song that was playing against my grand landscape was in my head as I regained consciousness. And I have to say, it was pretty catchy.

Fortunately, I had the fortune of having paper and pen close to my bed, so I quickly jotted down the lyrics of the 4-stanza song and fell back asleep.

The song's contents are rather inconsequential (the lyrics are embarrassingly bad), but the fact I managed to wake up, scribble down the lyrics (which are cohesive and have lyrical rhythm) was pretty cool. This had never happened before. Finally, my dreams are seeping into reality! Now if I just had the power to turn my lucid dreams into reality ...

I have a recurring dream...I'm soaring over a yellow landscape...it's breathtaking...it's Roy's body.
