Spolied dream..

I was about to kiss that girl from 'Before Sunrise' when my phone started ringing. Without opening the eyes I searched all along the bedside to grab and smash the phone on the wall. But then, I had kept it away on the side shelf, so that I had to get up from bed and walk across the room to turn the alarm off. A 'clever thing' done to ensure that I don't switch off the alarm, turn around and go back to sleep. I am on a strict fitness regime these days which starts with the morning jog. I normally have no problem with Pearl Jam or Eddie Vedder in particular, but when he sings "Have no fear for when I am alone.." at 5 in the morning, when I was about to kiss the most beautiful woman in the world.. yes, I do have a problem.

But what is the fuss all about? Why can't I just get up and go ahead with the day, like I do every other day? The problems are many. To start with, a dream disturbed is a dream lost. Straightening the leaning tower of Pisa is easier than recreating a dream. You just don't have any control over this one thing in life. And if you come out of one, there is no way to get back in. I have tried all the tricks - not opening my eyes, pulling the blanket over my head, curling the pillow around my head, thrusting both hand between legs and getting into the fetal position and what not. More over, how many times you get to dream about spending time with a beautiful woman? All that I see in my regular dreams are monsters, some scene from 'Koyaanisqatsi' and an occasional bus journey to the market with strangers.

Adding to the misery, it was not just any girl in the dream.. it was Julie Delpy from 'Before Sunrise', damn it! If you still have that frown on your face it's because of one of the following. 1) you haven't watched the movie. 2) you have a twisted perception of beauty. 3) you are a certified nut. 4) all of the above.

Anybody who can come up with a method or device to program dreams is definitely going to make a lot of money. And there should definitely be a better way to start the day than getting up early in the morning.

One of my favorite movies of all time. Julie is absolutely divine in the movie.

Too bad you were so rudely interrupted!
