you may say I'm a dreamer….

Truth Is, I Am Ironman

Well, not really….

However, I did unwittingly complete an Ironman triathlon without breaking a sweat….

In my dream that is…

RUNNING – Up a long dirt hill. I was being chased by Nazis and I was headed toward the trees. I was running out of breath, but kept on going.

SWIMMING – The dirt road ended at a cliff edge and I jumped into the water below, swimming, swimming, swimming through cold water to get to the other side.  I think I have lost them, but cannot be too sure, so I keep up the pace.

BICYCLING – I scramble through the brush on the bank and get to a dirt road.  I see a bicycle with a yellow basket leaning against an old wood barn.  I jump on the bike and pedal on ~  and on ~ and on ~ and on ~ and on ~ and on.

I pass a gentleman on a bicycle coming from the opposite direction.  He is tall and thin and carrying a chandelier.

Fine

The “Truth Is” photo is borrowed from the 2008 American film Ironman poster.

So many funny lines in that movie… here is one that stands out to me, as it came to me in sleep or trying to sleep mode.

“I’m Tony Stark. I build neat stuff, got a girl, occasionally save the world. So why can’t I sleep?”

I’m tired, it’s time to wake up.
