i woke up with a start in the middle of last night, feeling sickish, with my heart beating wildly.
it was a dream that was to blame.
i don't remember much, but the last thing that happened was, i was walking down this huge long flight of stairs from a church. The stairs somehow seemed similar to the ones outside St. Fancis D'Assissi Church near home, but the view of the road in front of the church reminded me of Our Lady Of Immaculate Conception Church, Panaji.
anyway, while i was near the top of the stairway, far from the side railing, and walking down the stairs, the stairs suddenly became near-vertical while i was in mid-step. and i was holding my foot in mid-air, around 4 storeys above the road.
i woke up in a funk. checked twitter in the hope of calming my nerves down by distracting me, but a few seconds later, i closed my eyes to recall that final scene, and the sick feeling returned.
i could reproduce that feeling of vertigo by just closing my eyes and recalling that scene.
thankfully, i can recall it now without any vertigo. but this was the first time i've got this feeling in a dream.
