The Dream is more precise than wakefulness

Some writing comes easy, especially the exposition of the critical – the writing that comes from the head.  But what is the worth?

Most writing now painful and difficult.  Hours spent at the computer staring at the screen without a single keystroke.

You seek to capture a feeling or a thought that is true and important, or you inhabit a world of your imagination, and then you take that precious and evanescent wisp and try to reify it in the form of words.

You stagger through a maze of spaces, lost.

I recall Paul Elouard´s words:

“Write first, think after.”

His point may be worthwhile to consider…

I so recognize what you are “struggling” with. The “precision” we strive after may be so elusive.. So decisively eluding our deliberate pursuit…

That evanescent clarity doesn´t let itself be “captured”.

It is…

The in-between…

The un-wording…

The up-rooting…

One has to constantly begin…
And persistently remind oneself to end.

The ending of no beginning…

Sometimes the Dream is more precise than wakefulness…

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
