What is the best dream you’ve ever had? Recount it for us in all its ethereal glory. If no dream stands out in your memory, recount your worst nightmare. Leave no frightening detail out.
Let me say it in all it’s glory: I have had dreamless sleep almost my entire life. Okay that doesn’t exactly count when I was a kid, since cane barely argue for that just like in most other cases, though don’t remember ever waking up (or otherwise…) because of one.
Instead, here is a nice quote by the missile man (former president) of India:
“The dream is not that you see in sleep, dream is which doesn’t let you sleep.”
– Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
Also in other news, it’s my birthday today. Still dreaming. 😉
In a nightmare, you’ve encountered three doors. Choose one, and let us know what you find on the other side.
This reminds me of the most famous problems in Probability Mathematics, the Monty Hall problem. Well I’m not much a digger for maths, but some subjects especially like probability I have a very deep interest in which is one of my favourite. Most people must have heard about it, just not necessarily with the same name.
Now instead of winning a car, or worse getting a goat, instead I might get a bad dream, or ‘win’ my nightmare. Either way, that would suck. But in this case, not much a big deal for me, as I seldom have dreams in my sleep, be it good or bad. The only things I have ever dreamed must be traveling around in nice exotic places,
eating hogging lot of amazing food, hump a beautiful woman, or just sleep on a hammock in a nice tropical setting (now that’s a dream within a dream)
Coming to the doors, one might have a room with terrible food. Another one might lead me into a helpless jungle-island filled with dangerous beasts, animals and pirates alike, just like in Far Cry 3 perhaps. And the one which I’m most likely to pick (the ‘winning’ one) is a huge fall as big as from space to earth straight into a pile of shit. Dam that would be a nightmare indeed!
Vagabonding is about taking time off from your normal life – from six weeks to four months to two years – to discover and experience the world on your own terms – Rolf Potts
Taking time off from your ‘normal life’, just that in my case, I want that to be ‘my normal life’! Generally when we hear the word ‘vagabond’ we think of person stricken with poverty/unemployment or just simply a fool wandering from place to place. But in reality, (or so I would like to think it that way) I would want to be a vagabond (my kind old man already claims I’m one of sorts), travel around the world, meet new people, see and do things which I always wanted to, get familiar with lot of new things which I might have never heard before, (it’s all about vaga-bonding right?) and live on the go.
Oh how I dream of such an ideal job. Looks like I’ll have to do a lot for that. The world seems small yet so large. (And I’ll keep my love for paradoxes for later)
