Tag Archives: dreaming


I’ve been writing and reading quite a bit lately.  This morning is no different.  The pink and orange sunrise came into my view as I sat on the veranda reading “Eleanora” by Edgar Allan Poe.  When I came upon the following, I was struck by the clear truth in this passage:

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”

I thought about this for a long while.  My conclusion is that there is no doubt the veracity of the quote; to dream whilst asleep is inert.  To dream by day is dynamic.
