Now and then, one of the daily prompts grabs my attention, even though I don’t follow them specifically. (I prefer to draw from the Weekly Photo Challenges on the Daily Post.) But Green Embers’ fictional story drew me right in. His reference to 911 reminded me of when my son last called it on my behalf (apparently after learning about it at school). I related the story to HuntMode on her Alert & Warning Center ~ Ever Wondered? post.
Ever have an experience that felt surreal, as though you’d been suddenly transported into the twilight zone, where time seemed to warp, perhaps slowing down or speeding up?
I would guess that for many people, mention of “the twilight zone” gets them thinking of Rod Serling‘s series of the same name. But I think of this 1982 hit by Dutch rock band Golden Earring (NOTE: video is NSFW; skip this if a brief flash of side boob offends):
A 20th-century literary and artistic movement that attempts to express the workings of the subconscious and is characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtaposition of subject matter.
Most notably, the Surrealists were inspired by dreams.
I am a day late to this prompt, but again, it seems like answering it was a natural course of action. Only a day before, Steph Rogers wrote a post about a lucid dream she had.
This is a quick post but something I had to get out because I am feeling creeped out by it. Last night I was aware and conscious inside my own dream. It was the strangest thing!
But my dreams are bizarre, and not even in the cool way.
I can’t find the comment threads or the blogger that directed me to a Huffington Post article called Is This Why Some People Are Able To Remember Their Dreams Better Than Others? days before. But I gathered that if I wasn’t sleeping well, I remembered dreams more. I especially tended to remember dreams during naps.
