Dreams are better during the day, when you are awake and listening. I like to let my mind wander through ideas and endless landscapes, to see where I end up. Sometimes I am supernatural, a mix of human and superhuman power. In other dreams I am normal, but in a fantasy life. I like to drift along silently, to watch the stories unfold without spoiling them. Dreams are better during the day, when you can live in multiple universes. Sometimes I am a dragonrider, and sometimes the dragon. Each time it is just me, transplanted into a dream, a life.

This was a prompt inspired by the Prose Prompt's thread in the Earth Flight forums at Flight Rising titled "Dream a little dream of me". Unlike previous 100-word essays I have written, this does not focus on a past memory; while not quite nonfiction, it is more akin to a reflection on daydreaming. I slip into daydreams often, and find that many good stories come out of them. Unfortunately, once I come back to reality, I sometimes forget to write tidbits down for later use. Other times, the stories are more like fanfiction, so I don't act on them. In any case, they can be uplifting and inspiring, especially when I need a break from reality.

That's why I sometimes go back to bed after waking up, just to dream a dream again
