               WE CAN BREAK THROUGH THE VEIL. AS              
             ALWAYS, IT BEGINS WITH A JOURNAL. WE             
           MUST WRITE DOWN OUR NIGHTLY PROJECTIONS.           
                                                              
           THIS WILL BE AWKWARD AT FIRST, SINCE IT            
             ENTAILS BREAKING SLEEP - TURNING ON              
            LIGHTS IN THE DARK, TAKING THE TIME TO            
                    REMEMBER AND TO WRITE.                    
                                                              
            IN ORDER TO REMEMBER, LIE STILL. DON'T            
             MOVE. DISREGARD ALL THOUGHTS OF THE              
             DREAM BEING MUNDANE OR MEANINGLESS.              
                                                              
            KEEP CHIPPING AWAY THE DARKNESS: WHAT             
              HAPPENED? HOW? HOW DID I GET THERE?             
            WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE? AND BEFORE? AND             
                           BEFORE?                            
                                                              
             SOMETIMES ALL WE GET IS A FEELING, OR            
            SOME LINGERING SPACIAL AWARNESS OF AN             
              ALIEN PLACE, OR THE NOTION THAT IT              
                       RAINED JUST NOW.                       
                                                              
             WRITE IT DOWN. WHATEVER TINY THING.

            OF COURSE I TRIED TAPE RECORDERS. THEY            
            ARE MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE AS I NEED NOT           
             OPEN ANY EYES, OR MOVE VERY MUCH. BUT            
            THEY MAKE STUDYING HARD - THE DREAM IS            
               INSIDE THERE, HIDDEN AWAY AGAIN.               
                                                              
            WE JUST CHANGE ONE KIND OF INVISIBILITY           
            FOR ANOTHER. THE PURPOSE OF THE BOOK IS           
                        TO ~LAY BARE~.
