Am I Dreaming or Remembering

"The light of memory,

or rather the light that memory lends to things,

is the palest light of all. . . .

I am not quite sure whether I am dreaming or remembering,

whether I have lived my life or dreamed it.

Just as dreams do,

memory makes me profoundly aware of the unreality,

the evanescence of the world,

a fleeting image in the moving water."
Eugène Ionesco, Present Past—Past Present
