Charles E. Burchfield's Dreams, Journals, February 18, 1946

Thursday, July 12, 2018

A curious dream, only a fragment of which I remember – I was shaving myself and my reflection in the mirror expanded into a hillside, all covered over with shaggy black hair which I hacked at with the razor. It was suddenly shattered by the alarm clock – somehow or other the lever had been pushed over to “on” – it was only about 5:00.
