Upon Awakening, Every Thing As Never Before

I am forever amazed by the mourning shower; a dial for cold water, a dial for hot; water volume and pressure in abundance; a hungry drain that goes where I know not where. Amazement never ceases as I envision myself as royalty from the distant past or someone living today in the underdeveloped world; for them, this morning shower is unlike anything they have ever experienced. Vicariously, I too experience this shower for the first time ever. If not, I must be still sleeping.

Thus begins a happy life, grateful and free to experience the world outside the context of my memories.
