You get woken at 2:00 am. It's dark. A vague, shadowy woman beckons you to the doorway. "Interesting dream," you think. You follow her into your living room. The lights are on. You scrutinize this person, this woman. She is lovely. Well-groomed. Attractive. Her face, though ... she looks a lot like you. More intensely You.
You mean to say, "Who are you? What are you doing in my house?", but a warning look from the Uber-You silences you. Flopping down on the sofa, your stare, wide-eyed & tongue-tied yet mesmerised.
The three of you sit silently in that room for what feels like an age, an aeon. Your focus swings from one woman to the other, even as your brain races to make sense of the situation. The silence sways and swings your thoughts, and in that silence understanding blooms.
Like a flower opening tentatively, you reach for understanding ...
You wake up in your favourite chair. The remaining tendrils of memory give you an image, a sensation, of the three of you each sitting down, fusing & blending & melting into one.
A fusion of You, Sad-You, & Uber-You.
You feel your way to your thoughts.
You think your way to your feelings.
Exploring, considering, hunting for meaning & relevance.
"Three possibilities of Me. One deteriorated, One the same, One fabulous & awesome.
That One - the fabulous & awesome One - that is who I want to be.
How do I bridge that gap? How do I get from Here to There?"
The question grows & burns & tears into you, for minutes & hours & days ...
