Dreaming Awake

I woke up this morning around 4am with a strange urge to visit the location where Kaitlan was abducted (in my dream). I’m not sure why I felt that need so strongly, but I got up, got dressed and walked to the east end of town. In my dream she was forced into a car under the Main St. bridge and when I got there I found the spot. The air was unusually warm and the ground still wet from the recent rains. There’s wasn’t anything there that I could connect to my dream, but I did find a bar receipt plastered up against the side walk. It was from The Saucer, but there was nothing else legible on it. I walked around the legislative area until sunrise then headed back to my apartment, tired and hungry.

Here’s where things get really crazy. When I got home I found another me sleeping in my bed. This made no sense, I was sure I was awake and I had been awake for roughly 4 hours. I had walked around downtown and even spoken with the doorman at my apartment when I came home. However, unless I have a secret twin roommate it suddenly appeared that I was dreaming again.

I thought about the water incident from yesterday and the things Arnold said at the riverfront. I decided to grab my camera and test the suspicion I had. I snapped a photo of the sleeping me and then grabbed a shot of both of us in the same frame.  I sat the camera back on the dresser, closed my eyes and forced myself to wake up. When I opened my eyes I was in bed, I was the only one there. I quickly jumped up to grab my camera… these were the two most recent photos.

I’m not sure how to explain this – but now I know I’m not losing my mind.

    Fascinating account of events, Charles. This phenomenon has gained my keen interest. Have you experienced any further persona duality? I look forward to your future posts.
