      A Dream Within a Dream

      Hi all,

      I've been listening to The Alan Parsons Project this morning.

      Here is the intro to 'A Dream Within a Dream'

      I thought they were kind of cool and relevant.


      "For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down
      in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it.
      There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are not
      thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely impossible to
      adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas how rarely.
      Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the bodily and mental
      health are in perfection. And at those weird points of time, where the
      confines of the waking world blend with the world of dreams. And so I
      captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem, is but a dream within
      a dream."
      you must be the change you wish to see in the world...

      Well i dont know alan parson project(who are they really?) but i know the poem.

      A Dream Within A Dream
      by Edgar Allan Poe

      Take this kiss upon the brow!
      And, in parting from you now,
      Thus much let me avow-
      You are not wrong, who deem
      That my days have been a dream;
      Yet if hope has flown away
      In a night, or in a day,
      In a vision, or in none,
      Is it therefore the less gone?
      All that we see or seem
      Is but a dream within a dream.

      I stand amid the roar
      Of a surf-tormented shore,
      And I hold within my hand
      Grains of the golden sand-
      How few! yet how they creep
      Through my fingers to the deep,
      While I weep- while I weep!
      O God! can I not grasp
      Them with a tighter clasp?
      O God! can I not save
      One from the pitiless wave?
      Is all that we see or seem
      But a dream within a dream?
      Are yαυ dreαψιng?

      Hey, I like EAP. That piece was from 'Tales of Mystery and Imagination'

      All songs are based on EAP:

      A dream within a dream
      The raven
      The tell-tale heart
      The cask of amontillado
      Doctor Tarr and professor Fether
      The Fall of the House of Usher

      Really cool!

      A dream within a dream
      The raven
      The tell-tale heart
      The cask of amontillado
      The Fall of the House of Usher

      I've read all of these.....I love them all...

      My favorite would be The fall of the House of Usher, the imagery is perfect and the metaphor of the house, and what it represents is perfect...
      If I hadn't made me
      I'd be more inclined to bow
      Powers that be would have swallowed me up
      But that's more than I can allow...

      once upon a midnight dreary,
      while i pron surfed, weak and weary,
      over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot xxx galore'.
      While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark,
      suddenly there came a warning,
      and my heart was filled with mourning,
      mourning for my dear amour,
      " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered,
      " give me back my free hardcore!".....
      quoth the server, 404.
