Un Rêve Lucide (Weekend Reflections # 552)

Paris, France

When I saw this reflection I had the same feeling as I do when I suddenly realize that I'm dreaming. It's usually triggered by something familiar but not quite right. The feeling is usually disconcerting and sometimes startles me awake, other times I adapt and go with it. During the past few months I've had similar feelings about this strange new world we've been thrust into. However, I'm pretty sure I'm awake.

Have a great weekend!

The backward writing made me realize this is a reflection. No, you are not dreaming. We would all love to get back to normal life, but not until the pandemic is gone. Hang in there, and stay safe.

Yes, I'm feeling a little queasy too. Quite an auspicious title for a quaint hangout.

Ni tout à fait pareil , ni tout à fait autre..
ça vaut pour ta photo, ça vaut pour tes rêves, et ça vaut pour le monde d'aujourd'hui..
Magnifique reflet!

Oui nous vivons un peu la tête à l'envers, et la réalité a souvent une étrange et incertaine consistance. j'espère que tout va bien pour toi et tes proches

It sounds like you may have visions, because they occur when awake. Suggest strongly you write them down. Right now it may have no meaning to you, but maybe what you see are things of the future. It often has to say something about something important for you. or for people you love.That would be awesome:) Have a good weekend!

James, I wonder if there ever will be what we once knew as "normal". Perhaps I've just been thinking too much. Beautiful colors caught in this reflection of "life"!..:)jp

James, that is a lovely Reflected scene. I think we have eaten there, is it sort of close to the Moulon Rouge? Mrs. Jim or daughter will know it.
Thanks for memories. Thank you too, for hosting.

Nice. The covid-ality is a strange dimension.
