Virtual closet

Have you ever had a dream where you didn’t get to finish it but you feel like the dream was really important? I had that late last week. I’ve had dreams lots of times before where I liked the dream and wanted to stay in it, but this was the first time I had a dream that was very important to complete and I didn’t get to complete it, and I haven’t been able to get back to that dream all week. I was sorting a lot of old photos and mementos, and actually throwing stuff out. It felt good, throwing the stuff out. There was a lot of stuff I didn’t need. But there was so much more stuff to go through. And then I woke up.

I guess I should be happy that I got through some of the stuff, at least. But you know how when you’re cleaning your closet or the garage or the basement, and you have to make even a bigger mess before you can clean it up? Right now I feel like I made the bigger mess and then the door to the room was cemented shut and the whole room was sent to the middle of the earth. I can’t get back to that dream, and I’ve been trying so hard.

Oh, but hey. Here’s a cartoon that reminds me of my childhood in Silicon Valley, back before it was called Silicon Valley. That was a long time ago.
