Before I went to bed last night I read the prompt on A month of haiga – February 6 – dreaming. Falling asleep I hoped I would have a good dream that would inspire a haiga.
It was a hot night. I have weird dreams when I get hot during the night. Sometime during the night I woke up from a completely crazy dream –
In my dream all the text messages. Facebook messages and blog comments we send had become conscious. Their one desire was to reproduce themselves and grow, grow, grow. Somehow they had taken control of our hands so that we sent more and more messages and wrote more and more comments – often the same one with minor variations. If we stopped texting and commenting our hands would fly up and hit us on the head.
The irony of the dream is I’m using a device to tell you about it.
This is the third time in the past few days this message about getting off electronic devices and the internet has come up for me. The first time was during a meditation, the second time was in my post about the new moon and now it’s come through in my dreams. It’s definitely time I listened to the message – I need to break from blogging and social media for a few days – unfortunately I have become addicted!
