hypnagogic states

I didn’t remember anything from last night’s short sleep, nor from this afternoon’s long catchup nap (except for a vague recollection of palling around with friends), but I engaged in a rather rewarding new exercise while I was listening to other people’s reviews during studio final review today. To wit: every time I snapped back from momentarily drifting off, I wrote down in my sketchbook what I had started dreaming about. (When I drift off involuntary like that, I’m usually dreaming even while partially conscious.) Here follows the list of things, copied nearly verbatim from my notes [or maybe elaborated a tiny bit]. In some cases I guess I was still too woozy to write clearly, and in those cases I’ll just write down what the letters look like. Each item in the list is from a different driftoff.
