smoke from a candle against a black night sky

When I go to sleep I ask myself: Who is going to sleep and who is going to dream?

The “I” that I know by day, (my body, my familiar identity, my ego), goes to sleep in the sense of turning off — and another aspect of my self, more mysterious and less ‘tagged’ and known – awakens into the dream.

Like the smoke released from a candle flame when it is blown out,  when “I” go to sleep, this other part of me is set free, coming un-tethered, drifting off.

And that is who, when “I” go to sleep, goes off to dream.
