i just keep waking up

i was hiking along a local trail today, and as i broke out from the woods into a clearing that overlooked the village below, i was overcome with gratitude - again. and i mean it when i say overcome. i stopped, knelt and bawled.

it seems that i just keep waking up. i mean, i find myself in a place where i think "ahhh, i feel so alive now, so awake. it's as if i was asleep before." and then a week later or a month later, "wow, i know i thought i woke up before, but now i'm really awake." and then it happens again.

i just keep waking up.
