When I rest my eyes and fall into that place of disconnection from my surroundings, I slide over into a land of creative, colorful narrations. My dreams are often so eventful that I wake up exhausted. The events in this book are real in my dreaming mind. This volume includes dreams and notes from 1997 through 2006. I have been journaling my dreams for decades and decided there must be a reason, therefore I am sharing. These episodes of varying lengths are neither fiction nor nonfiction, fantasy nor reality, just dreams. Sometimes they are funny and at times, they reflect the job I am working or events that have actually happened in my real life. I have also included some diary notes that fit between some of the dreams that may offer context. I have rarely tried to interpret my dreams, mainly because I am hesitant to connect with the power or prophecy or clairvoyance. There is space for interpretation and space for response to prompts about different dream scenarios and triggers. I encourage everyone to read, imagine, and travel to familiar or strange places in my mind and your own.
