BluebirdBlvd: The Chronic Dreamer and Her Dreams
In my dreams, I am always traveling. I may visit the vivid metropolis of Porto, Portugal or the tidy green vales of Salem, Portland while I sleep tonight. Tonight, I may drive a car I've never seen before down to the Rio Grande Valley to greet my friend Phillip at a night pulga covered in paper lanterns dipping in the wind; the vendors call and call to us, hands beckoning. Tonight, I am talking to Bill in a dingy little coffee place near his apartment in Manhattan. The fluorescent lights flicker and hum as I hear his voice for the first time. I have my headphones on tonight; the music spreads wide across oceans flickering, purring. Tonight I am craving sleep— I am running towards sleep with a bag packed, full of beautiful music, and I've got you in mind. Let me go, let me go, so I may finally arrive to meet you in a dream.*
