Thought for today:
‘Real are the dreams of Gods, and smoothly pass Their pleasures in a long immortal dream. ‘
— John Keats
‘Life is but a dream, within a dream.’
— William Shakespeare

Fresh from finishing “Love’s Executioner” by Irvin Yalom (almost for the second time), I dream of dreams.
In his book, Yalom discusses the dreams of his patients, how they relate to their lives and how to use them.
I am no psychoanalyst, but dreaming about having dreams seems to me to relate to my reading.
My first real message of the day is from a friend, who has had a dream.
I say real message because I don’t count automated updates from various companies.
Whilst a coincidence (the message about a dream), it amused me as I had already decided to write about dreams today.
And just for a change, to include two quotes instead of one.
I used to think dreams were just a way for the brain to tidy up at the end of the day.
Yet sometimes they seem to be playing out things that are on our mind.
Have you had a good dream lately?
