I have this recurring dream.
I’m walking on a path, going somewhere, and gradually the path is getting steeper and steeper until I’m having to scramble rather than walk, and eventually I’m clambering up an almost sheer cliff face.
So long as I keep moving I can just about hold on, I won’t fall unless I stop and look down, but I never manage to get to the top.
I mean, I know what it’s telling me, this dream, but I can’t even frame a response never mind figure out how I’m supposed to actually fix it.
post script: just remembered, one time when I had this dream I actually told myself ‘I can’t do this any longer.’
But the next time I had the dream I just kept on climbing.
