A dream begins as an itch. This is not the kind of itch that you scratch. It doesn’t appear as a spider bite, or dry skin in need of lotion. Rather it is an itch that bubbles inside of you. Just when you think the itch has disappeared, it comes back. And it keeps coming back.
Most of the time, you ignore it. There are no thoughts that even consider acting out on that itch. Years go by, and your only thought is how to get rid of the itch. To make it go away once and for all.
