"You can wake from one dream only to find yourself plunged into yet another, like some endless rosary of the mind. When that happens, it is hard to glimpse what is not dream; the waking, undreamed world flies by you, in rushing flashes of light and air, in loud, quick dangerous spaces like those between cars of a train. There is nothing you can do. You walk in the sleep of yourself and wait. You wait for the train to pass." - Lorrie Moore
