I have always been a sleeper. This is not something that I am proud of. It is a confession. If I let myself, I can easily sleep for more than twelve hours a day. I have even slept for days at a time. I know why I sleep so much. It is a form of escape. It is running away while resting. If you want to get an idea about where I like to run off to, listen to Jerry Goldsmith’s Carol Anne’s Theme from the Poltergeist II: The Other Side (1986) original motion picture soundtrack. I do not always reach my destination but you will probably understand why I keep trying.
We can’t possibly get the most out of dreaming while we’re asleep.
