I open my eyes and am awake - I'm in my bedroom, it's after 1 am, Domino is curled up on the floor by her scratching post. I close my eyes and immediately:
I see a regular procession of neighborhood people walking past, going in the same direction as the chair carriers had been, the same distance from me (maybe 3 feet), the same speed (moderate walking pace).
I open my eyes again, yup, it's the bedroom. Feels like lucid dreaming. Never have done that before, but have heard a lot about it from Romana and others who did the Stanford sleep program. Decided to close my eyes again and see if I could make particular people walk by.
Nope. In fact, I can't recognize anyone. All this time I've seen no faces. I'm looking at their backs as they already passed me by. I try to look in the direction they are coming from, but it makes me wake up.
