I am participating in BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo for the month of January.
Today’s writing prompt question is: "If you could be given the option to never sleep and also never be tired, would you take it if it meant you'd also never dream again?”
This is an interesting question. Coincidentally, I have recently been wishing that I didn’t have to sleep. I have also wondered why we were designed to require such necessary specific periods of unconsciousness.
The reason I have been pondering what it would be like to never sleep is because I simply need more time. Oh, the list of what I would do with all of those extra hours, (which would eventually add up to extra years) is long.
Concerning dreaming, it’s apparent that unconscious dreams are ones that are written, produced and directed by anonymous forces.
I suggest that day dreams are more peaceful and satisfying.
In my day dreams I would never imagine free falling from the sky, or have visions of plane crashes in my back yard. I would not be worried that I couldn’t find my way home or be terrorized by evil monsters. In my day dreams I would not cry and sob without sound or tears.
For you see, in my day dreams I can conjure up magical and wonderful places at my will.
In my day dreams, dads are never taken from their sons, and sons are never taken away from their dads.
In my day dreams I can live like a hermit, remotely in my little cabin in the woods or sing on the world stage like a diva.
Yes, I would take the no sleep for those precious extra moments and as long as I could day dream I would not miss those night frights.
But, I have to stop writing now, because, that’s right you guessed it, it’s late and I am falling asleep, darn it anyhow.
For the record, today Ross and I went to the Ocean City NJ boardwalk and beach. Thankfully, it seems to have survived Hurricane Sandy.
Here are a few photos from our visit.

We also rode through Atlantic City and came upon this section right around the corner from Ventnor Blvd.
