Our dreams disturb us because
they refuse to pander to our fondest notions of ourselves.
The closer one looks, the more they seem to
insist upon a challenging proposition:
You must live truthfully. Right now. And always.
Few forces in life present, with an equal sense of inevitability,
the bare-knuckle facts of who we are,
and the demands of what we might become.
