No Right Answers
Last week, we had to get up real early to cross the state for my daughter's gymnastics competition. At 3 o'clock in the morning, I thought I woke up to the sound of a very state-of-the-art alarm clock that spoke to me in a lovely woman's voice: "It's 3 o'clock, Cathy, please wake up." It repeated itself until I reached over and turned it off. Then I said to myself, 'wait, this isn't my clock' and went back to sleep.
When I really woke up 2 hours later I remembered the 'false awakening' and just had to laugh. Was that my bio-rhythms in vocal form? Did I wake up in my future when I will have a clock like that? Or, was my dreaming self just trying to get lucid?
There are, of course, no 'right' answers, but it does beg the questions.
