    I can never remember them past the moment I

    It may seem strange,

    but I really look forward to nightmares. When you realized that you are dreaming, all the possibilities change. Reoccurring nightmares are the best. When you wake up from a nightmare life seems better then when you wake up from a supposed good dream.

    To understand why the dream I had this morning

    was bad, you have to know a little bit of history. In 1975, when I was 12 and just starting seventh grade, I met on the bus a girl named Jeanne. She was 13, but in ninth grade, and I pretty much fell in love with her at first sight. Over the next few years, we had a varied...

    When I am late for anything in a dream,

    I will wake up in a state of panic. I had a dream about almost being stabbed to death by an escaped mental patient and that was fine, but if I'm late, I wake up and I can't breathe. Ah well.
