Picture: Alphonse Mucha, Repos de la Nuit, 1899.

I’ve been existing in a Jungian state of mind for quite some time now, reflecting on the subliminal power of our individual dreams and subconscious psyche. 

I just finished reading Patti Smith’s surreal The Year of the Monkey. Weaving a tapestry of dreams and memories and telling her story from somewhere in between,  I am reminded of the end of John Keats Ode to a Nightingale: 

Was it a vision, or a waking dream? 

        Fled is that music:—Do I wake or sleep?
