Recently, I posted something about my Crash Report. [Crash Report] is the name I have given to my Dream Journals. Back in January, I began recording my dreams. The key, of course, is documenting every available detail as soon as I open my eyes. Otherwise, as you undoubtedly know, the dream tends to fade away. Although my dreams are so very odd, a little fading isn’t so bad.

I posted something else titled [Knock, Knock]. That piece was written during the night after I woke up to the sound of knocking. Since that night, I have woke up twice more after hearing two soft knocks while sleeping. Hmmmmm . . . also . . . very odd.

And, I posted another piece about Biphasic Sleep. Long ago, Biphasic Sleep was commonplace here in the US. For myself, it’s still common. I usually go to bed early, sleep for a few hours, and then wake up. My sleep intermission tends to last about one hour, of which I make the most of it by reading up on my favorite blogs [probably yours]. With forty-five minutes to an hour, I’m ready to go back to bed.

Last year, I posted something titled [Wake Up And Be Brilliant]. In it, I theorize this, during that [period of time] when we first wake up, our brains are undistracted and clean. This is our [genius time] and should be used accordingly. It is during this short period of [pure thought] that many of us will do our best work. Although not everyone, some folks need liquor, cigarettes, and a good movie to think straight. I’ve known a few.

Until recently, I hadn’t noticed how much time and thought I had been investing in contemplating my sleep, dreams, and wake-up process. Like most everything else within this new life I have created for myself, igniting the fires of self-inventory is key to staying on the path. Without the drive to improve me, what am I?
