there is a moment upon just
waking up from a dream
when you experience
a startling shift in perspective;
in that moment you realize that
the life you were most recently leading -
the life in your dream -
was merely a product of your imagination -
in this transition period your return
to the waking world often seems
like the termination of an illusion...
awakening from a lucid dream
can be just as startling...
because the conscious realization
that you are dreaming does not
dilute the power of your
dream identity at all.
