It is ironic to me that when I want to put pen or pencil to paper and actually write, songs come to mind. Lately it has been the theme song to LOVE STORY. Where do I begin to tell the story of how great my life could be. Then there is nothing.
So what I have been thinking of doing is writing down inspiration sentences. The only thing that came up was a dream I had several years back. It was one of those dreams that seemed so real, as if it were happening all night long. I dreamed I was eating food from a particular restaurant that I loved. About 4 or 5 in the morning I woke up to go to the bathroom. Before I went back to bed, I made sure that I had not done what I believed I had. So I checked the trash can for the to go containers. There was nothing. I checked the refrigerator and there was no containers there either. I started to breathe a little easier when I had a horrible thought that I took the containers to the dumpster. I finally told myself that it was just a very vivid dream and to relax.
The reason this was such an alarming dream for me is that I had weight loss surgery revision about 10 days before. I was on liquids at that point and some how eating jalapeno poppers, fried mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, brownies and/or cheesecake all night was not a great thing to be doing. I was craving food so bad that it was invading my sleep world. How do I write about that with some interest? Do I described the senses – smell, taste, etc?
Okay, so what I will do is write one sentence that could begin a paragraph. One dream sentence to remind me what to write about. Then I can come back and write from there later. I do not have to do the whole thing perfectly, just one awesome sentence.
