Dreams like that always take me a while to shake. I usually wake the next day feeling confused, I have to tell myself none of it was real. It's so upsetting when the details include the kids.

I'm so glad your T is okay. And that you are able to share about it now. It's a story full of hope...you just had to get through the storm.

I don't usually remember my dreams, and I don't usually have nightmares-but when I do, they are really vivid and often disturbing. And I"m like you--I have trouble shaking the dreams!

What a huge milestone!

As for the nightmare, I sympathize. When I wake up from those, I can go through the whole day with a sense of dread and have to keep reminding myself there's no real reason to feel that way.

How very alike, dreams and passages. Both often involving uncharted territory of perilous import, they both may require serious periods of adjustment to fit into our minds.

It's amazing how some dreams can be so vivid and real, and others just dreams--smoke-like and easily scattered when you wake up.

Good thought, John--dreams and passages. You're right--they are so alike.
