I'm surprised how much I loved this shortish story. The juxtaposition of real life and the dream world. Dreams are still such a mystery to me. Sometimes so random and some oddly real and poignant. It was a satisfying ending for me and made me feel happy but contemplative.

Does anyone truly understand this? The writing is well done and the reader did an excellent job, but I am not sure which of the worlds (childhood or adulthood) is reality. Perhaps neither is.

re which world is real?

I think both are and that is the magic
