Dreamed 1990/9/26; 16-color digital comic drawn with a mouse on an Amiga by Chris Wayan
I dreamed I was a telepathic rabbit on an alien world. My life there was so vivid and coherent that I think it's a real planet out there...
So be lonely, dig your burrow, sharpen your hunches...
Dream well, fellow rabbits.
So dream well.
- 22 years later... I'm still a wary bunny. I still value loneliness and disunity and confusion and other such... flaws. I do my art quietly at home and socialize sparingly; I can only tolerate those rare people whose auras are basically animal.
- "...the essence of a Hearth is that its feel is NEVER general." Hearth can of course be read 'heart', too.
- I read Yeats a lot in 1990; no wonder a poem of his appears in the dream. Only it isn't Yeats! Doesn't sound at all like him--maybe William Carlos Williams, Amy Lowell, or Eliot flirting with haiku. Here it is in plain text, this non-Yeats Yeats poem, neither telling a dream nor heard nor read nor composed in a dream, but already known in a dream:
Yet in the dream, I knew it was Yeats and recalled it word-for-word. I almost never have such firm dream-delusions. Or such accurate word-memory. I don't even like its clunky rhythm, yet I'd memorized it. There is one authentically Yeatsian touch: reincarnation. He suspected we do come back over and over; so do I. Each life like a dream we wake from, or a day we rest from...
