Crossroads...

We come to them every minute of our day.
Tea or coffee…
Cereals or toast…
Black trousers or jeans…
Crème caramel or cheese…
Drink or abstain…
Scream or whimper…

Most of the decisions we make are not life-changing...unless we do drink gallons of coffee and wine and eat tons of cheese, and then we may end up with clogged-up arteries.

Lately a thought has been going through my mind every minute of my day:

I KNOW I am not living my REAL life…

Am I hallucinating?

Perhaps you are living someone else's... and you better watch out when they decide they want it back!

No, the universe has in fact been usurped by an evil mastermind who has shrunk it to the size of a cricket ball and fast-bowled it down the space-time continuum and your entire existence is on the tip of a pencil wielded by a deranged cartoonist in a disused skip at the back of the Gare du Nord ... OH! sorry, I've been reading Goth's blog again.

Stay off the mushroom soup, Cream.

Caro, maybe, maybe...;o) And who's living MY life then?

Daphnee, thanks for the directions.
For a daft minute I thought I was talking sense and trying to find my own direction...

Authenticity. The search for an authentic life. It has the pull of the imperative at certain times in our lives.

I suspect your life is authentic, but possibly you've out-grown it? Like wearing too-tight shoes...

Half the time I think I am hallucinating but then I realize that is just my authentic self!

just imagine in great detail what you'd like your life to be like, then go DO IT

Solipsism...is the philosophical idea that "My mind is the only thing that exists"...
a metaphysical position that knowledge of anything outside the mind is unjustified...
the external world and other minds cannot be known and might not exist...
so who are you asking???
You can only ask yourself if this is your real life...so just tell yourself that sure enough this is your real life...because we don't even exist,
outside of your mind.

Hayden, the shoes are beginning to hurt...

Welcome Nikki... I bet that finding yourself among the hallucinations is not easy...

Oh, Ale imagining is not the problem... Getting to do it is!

H.E. I cannot believe I am talking to myself again!
I once thought I was the only person in the world and all the rest was just a figment of my imagination... Must be the same thing, eh?
I think I am going to have to work on that...
