Dream Log 5

Friday 6-15-18 / ……… / Saturday 6-16-18 Two parts to this dream.

There was this basket that opened up to two compartments. […]

Dream Log 4

Tuesday 6-12-18 / ……… / Wednesday 6-13-18 Flitted in and out of a lot of different locations last night. The most memorable was a room, similar to a gift shop, but bigger. The aisles were cramped, most of them nonexistent. The only way to go down the aisles would be to push them aside to […]
