    The Difficulty With Dream Journaling

    I've kept a dream journal for a long time but as you've probably realized, the more you write, the more you remember and it becomes unwieldy and time consuming. I keep trying-- and failing-- to condense dreams down to their essence when I write them up. What was the theme...

    Some days I wake up with this feeling in my

    soul. I think it's crying. I wonder if he hears it, it calls to him at night. And yearns for him in the morning. Closing my eyes helps to ease her pain. She remembers when you last held her. When you wrapped your arms around her so tightly. She hoped you would never let go. As...

    I dream about becoming successful one day,

    by helping others. I dream about making a difference in the world. I dream of writing a book. I dream of living somewhere hot, near a beach or something. I dream of becoming a psychologist, or a therapist. Maybe a criminal psychologist. I dream of becoming a good fighter. I...

    Dreamed of Grandpa...

    In my dream, I suddenly found myself in a very large square kitchen. I sensed green in the light color shade. Standing in the middle of the kitchen, I turned around to look at my surroundings  and saw my grandpa who passed away in 1985. He was standing there in the same...

    I could never picture myself not dreaming,

    even if it means going through the nightmares. One day I'll be that trauma nurse, even if it means having to abandon my full ride in Washington to move back to florida and start all over

    My whole life before meeting my ex,

    you were a dream that can never come true, I used to be called a dreamer thinking of you, even though you did not exist in my past years but you are for real, I have always felt that you are real and probably have wished for someone like me, thinking I was just a dream, not...

    Living On Possibilities

    The Dreamer and the Dream Even

    after all these years of dreaming I am still dumbfounded by the intricacy and originality of the "props" that lie scattered across the dream stage. One of my dreams, for instance, featured a carefully crafted letter from a past love which included a map of the Pacific Coast near...

    I was not always a dreamer.

    I grew up a doer. I entered my 20's a doer. Part of my personal journey has been attempting to discover where, when and why I became a dreamer. The more I probe the past for answers the weirder my life has become. People I identify with? An acquaintance friend from abroad...

    Most of my friends and coworkers think I'm

    It Is Not a Dream...

    Sometimes, I feel my entire life is only a dream... Too afraid to awaken. Too selfish to let go. Too unreal to be loved. Too broken to ever be whole again. I wonder if I shall ever belong in my own dream. As though I merely observe, ostracized from within. I see too much pain...

    A dream without planning

    and action is just a pipe dream... If you have a dream, make preparations, plans and what it takes to fulfill the dream, and put the plan into action and before you know it you will be living the dream!!!

    They all say. Not dreamer exactly.

    But synonyms. Crazy. Dreamer. Deluded. Naieve. Whacko. Trekkie. Nut job. Not the physical type of job but. Me says me is rare. Me is humane in a world of animals. We humanes are very rare. If you find us you should love us.
