Woke up at 6 AM this morning with a vague recollection of a dream; walked out to the balcony and found the college completely dark. A light pink touched the sky behind the silhouettes of dark trees. I couldn't see the sun. I could hear the soft murmur of trains chugging in the distance. Somehow, looking at everything around me, combined with the effect of the dream, I sensed something like (and I shudder at this word) an epiphany - I had the feeling that I was now onwards going to be a part of the New World (this phrase literally came to me) and I had finished with the Old World, had finished with everything in the Past. After that, I slept again, but I felt acutely aware of some kind of New World dawning on me.
