Dreaming while I can't sleep

Life seems like an odd dream lately. Not bad, not good, just very strange and interesting. Could be bad. Maybe even scary. Or, maybe it will turn good. Perhaps GLORIOUS even....! Might I wake up now and have everything back the way I remember?  Shall I cover my head and snooze a little longer to watch what happens next? Is this really a dream?? Or not?

Where would you go if you could choose whatever you wanted to?

I'm not sure I could say right now. My role as a homebody troll is quite advanced since work came home and moved into the little corner room upstairs. I like my "girl cave", too bad it's for WORK, though and not writing! 

Now that I think about it... Somewhere green would be nice. Sunny. Shady. Secluded. Perfectly temperate, but with the whisper of a breeze. NOT tropical, OR humid... Water somewhere nearby. A stream! Sauntering meadows. Trees dappling light where I sprawl.

I wonder what we'll dream of in heaven, when there's already so much to stoke our imaginations here on earth? Will we dream there? Does God? Didn't He dream buttercups up just for us? After all, He sprinkled fields of stars out, knowing we'd need reassurance while drifting off to sleep.

All that just for us...

There they are.
