  • Some mornings I wake up and worry that I can't remember my dreams! Today is one such morning. It is such an eerie feeling for me because it is connected with my biggest fear - memory loss. What if I woke up one day and couldn't remember anything? For example, I don't remember why I took the above picture. I remember why I take pictures - most of them.

    I live in my dreams and this life feels like a dream. When I wake up, I want to still hold on to the dream that just passed away, at least in bits and pieces.

    Why is it so hard to let go?
