Day Dreams

Daydreaming is a short-term detachment from one's immediate surroundings, during which a person's contact with reality is blurred and partially substituted by a visionary fantasy, especially one of happy, pleasant thoughts, hopes or ambitions, imagined as coming to pass, and experienced while awake

When I was little, various people whom I was connected with, my mother, my teachers, my family often complained about what a day-dreamer I was.

There was a chance remark someone said the other day that made me wonder if I am still day-dreaming away. And the conclusion was, I think I still am.

The reason why it is not so evident these days is probably because I kept myself quite occupied. But I have caught myself on numerous occasions, day-dreaming. 

First, back to the good old days of day-dreaming whereby one is not interrupted by too much schedules. I used to blast myself into imaginary world, be it frolicking with the mermaids, or hopping from one flower to another with the fairies. It could sometimes be imagining and unfolding 'real'situations be it examinations results or relationships etc. 

My mother used to get complains from my teachers of how I am 'always not there'. But I am sure the perfectly good reason of the fantasy world being nicer than the real one is very valid.

These days, it is not much different. The dreams may be slightly different but the circumstances which blasts me into them are not. It still hold true, fantasy being better than reality. When one is in the fantasy world, one conjours and fabricate the entire scenario. If I choose a setting of a space station, I shall be there. If I want to be in a beautiful forest, I shall also be there. I am not confined by limitations nor stifled by reality. 

However, I think the best dreams are still, dreams where one gets when one is deep in sleep. These are ones we do not have any control over. When they are pleasant ones, one wakes up in a perfectly great state of mind, ready to accept anything the cruel, harsh reality will dish out. Nightmares? Let's not go there. This is a posting about dreams.
