All THE SNOOZE THAT’S FIT TO PRINT

typewriter imageWelcome to Tzivia’s blog about the other third of our lives…the time we spend asleep and dreaming.

Here on this blog, we’ll get curious about dreams and explore them from every angle—from dream journeys to dream journals, and from dreams that are hard to remember to dreams that won’t let us forget. You may also find dream poetry, dream reports, dreams that tell the future, and dreams that tell it like it is. We won’t turn our back on nightmares or neglect dreams of ecstasy and bliss. We’ll examine messages from beyond and messages that seem to need a codebook to decipher. Be they sublime or ridiculous, we’ll track the territory and mine the mysteries of sleep and dreaming.
