The black dot on the back of my hand reminds me that I am awake. It is a process that is supposed to aid in the act of lucid dreaming. I see the dot, I am awake. No dot, I am dreaming. It all seems quite straight forward…until I step outside. Floating in space, suspended in time, I see the moon. Bright light radiating from the sky, clouds clearly visible in it’s gleam, and a large rainbow ring around the outside. I have to check my hand to see if I am dreaming already. Dot on my hand, I am not dreaming. This is real life! I do not want to go to sleep.
