“I love you. Even when I’m sleeping. When I close my eyes you’re everywhere.”. So sang Abby Dobson from Leonardo’s Bride.
Whatever you’re doing right now just stop for a second…close your eyes …who’s the person you are thinking about right now, the one who immediately sprang to mind ? You may not be asleep but it’s as close to it as consciously you are going to get.
Who are the most important people in your life ? As I too close my eyes, there’s one who I’m thinking of right now, I just wish she could read my thoughts so right now she would know just how important she is to me…although I don’t think there’s any doubt in her mind – she knows anyway. Maybe I’m in her thoughts right now too.
Of the people who feature in the dreams I remember, most are faceless individuals – fleeting glimpses of strangers. There are also ones who always seem to figure. These are the same ones who, if I close my eyes in the same way I asked you to just now, are the ones who too all re-occur in my mind’s eye.
I don’t mean that the moment my eyes close my thoughts leap from person to person like a slide show but dependant upon my mood or even what I was doing just before my eyes closed the person could be one of several. I find it impossible to think of nothing, of no-one, something always reminds me of someone.
All I know is they are all very important to me as otherwise why even in my dreams would I remember them ? They are the ones I want to share my life with, the ones important enough for me to want to carry them everywhere – the ones I do….even when I’m sleeping.
