How does one awaken oneself out of numbness?
My first thought is to fall back asleep to enter the dream world where nothing is numb. But I think that would be cheating.
My second thought is to set oneself on fire, which would call way too much attention to myself which I absolutely would not want. So cross that one out.
My third thought is sex, but that requires a collaborator and I don’t see any around.
My fourth thought is sex again, maybe with a different collaborator, in case I can’t find the first.
My fifth thought is to do something I would not normally think of doing, but that’s a little vague and doesn’t give me the direction I so urgently need.
My sixth thought is just to pretend that one is not numb and maybe something real can eventually arise out of all of that pretend non-numbness.
My seventh thought cannabis.
The seventh thought has more potential than the previous 6.
