“We seek to escape the dark cave of a despondent mind by either dulling oneself mentally or through imaginative acts. One form of escapism is daydreaming.”
― Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls
***This is not about the John Lennon song, “Imagine”. It is my favorite song by far!***
This morning like every morning I get up, put the coffee maker on, sit down and take my morning pills. A boring routine!
Today was a bit different, I found myself daydreaming wondering what my mornings would be like if I didn’t have to take my meds.
I find myself daydreaming quit a lot. For example, I see on a show a nice grand piano and I wonder what it would be like to have it in my home.
Maybe my daydreaming is an escape mechanism, but when you are basically house bound it allows me to roam around different places, events.
However it can become quite more serious, when I start believing that my daydreams are reality. I am not a psychiatrist, I have a feeling that is when it becomes serious. The reason I am writing about this is because I have dealt with an aunt who is Schizophrenia. She is fine while she is on her routine of meds, but I have seen her and interacted with her when she has come off her meds.
So dear reader I find my daydreaming fun, fun to imagine driving a sports car, living in a log cabin. Well I think you get the point!
