Wake up and dream

posted by Robert Moss

Contrary to what we are often told, dreaming is not fundamentally about what happens during sleep. It’s about waking up.  In ordinary life, we are often in the condition of sleepwalkers, going through the motions, trying to keep up with […]

The She Bear of Old England awakes

posted by Robert Moss
