Background

A description of the experience

The Hasheesh Eater – Fitz Hugh Ludlow

When I awoke it was morning – actually morning, and not a hasheesh hallucination.  The first emotion that I felt upon opening my eyes was happiness to find things again wearing a natural air.  Yes; although the last experience of which I had been conscious had seemed to satisfy every human want, physical or spiritual, I smiled on the four plain white walls of my bedchamber, and hailed their familiar unostentatiousness with a pleasure which had no wish to transfer itself to arabesques or rainbows.  It was like returning home from an eternity spent in loneliness among the palaces of strangers. 

Well may I say an eternity, for during the whole day I could not rid myself of the feeling that I was separated from the preceding one by an immeasurable lapse of time.  In fact I never got wholly rid of it.
