Stunned

Tonight I didn't take my sleeping pill, so after eight nights of uninterrupted sleep, I have woken up at 3am.

And I'm not even annoyed. I just had the best dream I have ever had. There were no grand special effects and I wasn't an astronaut or a pirate or anything cool. It was a very simple story and a very short one at the end of a dream that wasn't really going anywhere at all.

It was the most amazing, empowering experience I have ever had. It felt less like a dream and more like a vision of who I could be. Not in terms of that nagging question of what to do with my life. That's WHAT I could be. This was a dream about WHO I could be, and who you could be.

Imagine the story of Spiderman or Batman, but without them saving the city from evil. That's the story of someone like me, meek and mild-mannered or not doing anything with their life. Then comes the cataclysm and there's a change. You don't have to save Gotham for that change to be profound and important. All you have to do is change one life, one perception.

I think I was bitten by some kind of radioactive spider during the night.

I want to write this as a story, but I'm not sure I could do justice to the dream and the semi-religious experience it was for me just then. But something tells me I ought to try. I think it's the radioactive spider that says so.

Just... freaking wow.
