What if we are always dreaming. And the part of your brain that just rolled your eyes simply wants to go back below to drift around the murky depths where such exhausting thoughts are like salty water in an endless ocean. And when we meditate and make art we are awake in the dream and it is as much a reality as anything else is in this life.
