You would not be just an ornament, by Tatiana Heuman
It is possible to access new interpretations of the urgencies of the current reality through rest. Dreaming acts as an engine to continue when everything around seems to indicate that one of all ends is approaching.
Floating, hidden somewhere, appearing randomly, my dear dream,
Should I talk to you or about you? Because you seem to be a form of life, Have we talked too much about you, Have we talked too much with you? I don't think so. Not enough.
So I imagine this possibility: talking to the dream as a concrete entity, a character, a body that can act just like me. I should invoke it to interrupt the productive and demanding everyday life. To awaken this assembled but paranoid creature in which threads of memories tangle and untangle. An unexpectedly alien intelligence, a precision mechanism nesting in the most elusive corridors of our intimacy.
