The Fear of Being Awake: you gain consciousness with a scream.
The Fear of Walking: perhaps you choose to skip, run, or amble.
Fear of Dauschunds: perhaps you eat hamburgers without fries.
Fear of the Absurd: you shy away from watching the evening news.
Fear of Pit Bulls: you carry a ham sandwich which you can toss and run.
Ok, I know, I am reaching here.
I just realized I had a dream about Heath Ledger the Australian actor.
We were at a school graduation ceremony, and we were both going
to read our poetry as part of a final culminating experience. There was
an auditorium filled with people. Somehow we came up with the idea
that we should read each other’s work. I kept on losing my pages,
and when I looked at what I gave him it was sort of a mess.
I looked at his poems he gave me, and they were all about me.
There were lines with questions in them, and he asked me to
free form answer them in front of the audience. About how I feel…
the whole idea made me feel a bit hysterical.
I woke up before I had to go on stage. I think there was only one or
two people ahead of me at that point. I’m glad the dream stopped there.
It is so obvious to me what this dream is about, but I’ll spare you that part!
