Song - Partial clip from Peter Pan "You Can Fly" by Disney
February 5, 1953 was the date that wonderful movie "Peter Pan" came out.
But I have a different story.....
For the last few years, when I wake up at night (which is a common occurrence) I occasionally see a bright light on the ceiling of our bedroom. I have even woken up Mr. B thinking we had prowlers with super bright flashlights shining in our bedroom windows and up onto the ceiling.
This light is blinding and some nights I wondered if it might be Spirit trying to contact me in some form. So I just chalked it up to "other worldly" and left it at that. But like I said - it's been going on for years!
Last night I was awake from midnight until 4:30 and I saw "the light" several times. Always in the right corner of the ceiling. Mmmmm.....
Since I wasn't sleeping anyway, I decided to experiment.
1. It is always after I check my bedside alarm clock
2. It only happens as I roll over to my right side
3. It makes no noise
4. There is no light on other than the clock
5. Sometimes my eyes are closed
6. Maybe I should go see my Optometrist or a Psychiatrist
My discovery last night -
1. It isn't Tinkerbell (bummer)
2. It's just me
In the middle of the night my eyes look more like the photo below.....
It's called Diffraction and happens when I look at my alarm clock (on my left) then roll onto my right side with semi-closed eyes (they feel like they are closed). My eyes get moist from looking at the rather bright light of the digital alarm clock in the darkness and this moisture accumulates on my lashes. As I roll the light from the alarm clock reflects on the moisture on my lashes and it is so close to my eye, it is almost blinding.
So long story short - I am not crazy (at least not all of the time) or having ethereal thoughts but just a girl trying to figure out her crazy mixed up world. If you pass me by and not say "hi" the next time we are together, I will understand.
Oh and by the way - "I can fly, I can fly, I can fly"! (but only with a little bit of Pixie dust!)
“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.” -- J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
