I have a dreaming problem: I dream so much, so intensely that I have difficulty waking up in the morning. When I do awaken, I usually have a headache, sometimes feel slightly nauseated and am ensconsed in a mental fog. Unless I review (or recount) my dream immediately, I forget it. Just as well ( although I am writing a series of poems based on dream images.) My dreams exhaust me.
The work of the post-impressionist painters was very dream-like, wasn't it? Matisse, Gaugin, Rousseau, Van Gogh.... Perhaps that's why I am so drawn to it?
so, I recently returned from San Francisco; naturally, this New York TImes guide came out today. Not that it would have changed my trip, just that it makes me want to go back. That and listening to Joni Mitchell in the car.
