‘I have been dreaming’

Flying, by Gwen Raverat

When I reflect that I have made my appearance by accident upon a globe itself whirled through space as the sport of the catastrophes of the heavens, when I see myself surrounded by beings as ephemeral and incomprehensible as I am myself, and all excitedly pursuing pure chimeras, I experience a strange feeling of being in a dream.  It seems to me that I have loved and suffered and that erelong I shall die in a dream.  My last words will be, “I have been dreaming.”
