I MIGHT BE DREAMING
We all dream, or have dreamt.
Perhaps more when we were children, and as adults, often when under stress or just dealing with life.
With near surreal imagery and a hyper-vividness, we're left with much to think about after waking.
There have been times when we've inhabited a scene that seems so familiar, and yet it's not somewhere we've ever been. Friends and memories from the very distant past merge with completely unrelated ideas to produce a capricious narrative that we'd never have thought of otherwise.
I've always been fascinated with the workings of the brain and our imagination, never better considered than in the dream-like state when our brain takes control and leads us down a path to mesmerising stories. When I was a child, I used to look forward to going to bed, as dreams were like watching television,
but special just to me - and all night.
I Might Be Dreaming is a collection of songs written within dreams - but all so pertinent to us all.
Each one unfolds - a beguiling story, a fear, a hope - in the still of the night,
when we relinquish our hold on the day . . . and follow the dream.
