Our definition of dreams is wrong. They are not flights of fancy or goals to achieve. They are magical lands full of whimsy, worlds that are light and dark. They are places where magic is not just a word for unexplained things but real, tangible. Dreams allow us to take adventures, to slay the beast and save the damsel or to go on a quest we would not have otherwise imagined. We can be heroes or villains, and sometimes both. Dreams are everything. Without them, we are nothing. But not every dream leads to a safe awakening. Welcome to my nightmares.
