I dreamed a better version of myself




I dreamed a better version of myself.

Today, I remembered the dream.

Tomorrow, I begin the revision to todays rough draft.

The day after tomorrow, I will revise again.

An eraser will not be used, but a red pen, gently slashing through what I was, so that I can see.

The day after that, begins the new revision of the day before.

I don't know when the final copy will be published. It is in the writing, and revising, that I live.

I'll make notes on the side of each paragraph, reminding me that things could be added, here and there.

But no erasing.

I dreamed a better version of myself.

I share a birthday with Vincent Van Gogh, who once said:

"I dream my paintings, then I paint my dreams"

That's what I'm doing my friend.
