What Does Your Fave Filter Choice Say About You? 

Heck if I know… But on Instagram, I am partial to the “LoFi” filter, and LoFi has a very saturated and contrasty look, which is my wont. What does that say about me? I bet if Freud still had a shingle up somewhere in 2016, he’d be making strong assertions about the personality traits of […]

Dr. H. (His Boots Were Made 4 Talkin’)

(Dr. H’s real name has been changed to protect his identity. Any resemblance to a “Dr. K.” is unintentional and purely coincidental.)  Dr. H. was an important figure in my life for many years– so much so that to say he “was” important seems inaccurate. Our time together (most of the early aughts) may have ended long […]

To Remember The Dreams You Keep Forgetting, Try Forgetting What You Remember First

Sometimes setting a Google Alert really does pay off. I have one set for “remembering dreams,” which is how I came across this article on Salon.com– one of the best I’ve read on the topic of dream science (particularly on the ability to recall them) in a long time!  Believe it or not, they are few […]

There R Tears In My Throat…

…and they’re not even MINE!!! I really like being by myself a lot. Maybe too much. But if YOU were inside my head?  Trust me- you’d crave more “alone time” too.  Like a vampire craves blood. I feel guilty about this need for solitude wayyyyy more than I should. But just look around at our […]

Dream-Catchers: The “Engine Man’s” Dream Journal

Dream-Catchers: The “Engine Man’s” Dream Journal. It’s almost alarming how excited I felt tonight to discover another human being who (like me) keeps a dream journal and draws the images from his dreams in them.

Waiting 4 The Man 2 Float By In the Water

Despite the title, This dream actually has nothing to do with Brian Williams. I dreamt it (and drew it) weeks ago. But I just finished coloring it today, and the scene reminded me of his quote about seeing a dead man float past his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. […]
